Fixed features are a portrait of the designer, project information and describing text, tagging the project with features and a set of fixed themes, the option to upload as many images and captions as wished and the option to add a video.
The documentary films give an impression of the activities of Archiprix international with reports of the workshops, the award ceremonies and the experiences of the participants. Next to the documentaries you can see  the Favourite Architects of the participants of Archiprix International. In the filmed interviews participants explain their graduation project.
The initiative reflects rapid international developments in the design disciplines. Recent decades have seen an explosive growth in the scale of international contact, resulting in lively exchanges world-wide. Increasing numbers of designers work on commissions abroad, professional journals are published on an international scale, and training colleges are becoming more and more international in their orientation.

Archiprix International forms an expanding international platform for training colleges and newly graduated, talented designers. It spotlights international trends in architecture, urbanism and landscape architecture and brings designers together.
An independent jury rewards the very best submissions with the Hunter Douglas Awards. The aim of the awards is to stimulate the introduction of starting, talented designers into the world of professional practice.
