Rules and prize

The participants of Tekla Global BIM Awards are the winners of the local Tekla BIM Awards held during the year by Tekla area offices and resellers worldwide.

Tekla Global BIM Awards competition is divided into three categories. Each category is awarded with one prize.

The Jury

The winners of each category in Tekla Global BIM Awards will be decided by a jury of leading BIM experts in the world, both from inside and outside Tekla. Models will be judged upon complexity of the project, life cycle of the model and expansion to new industries. In addition to the winners, special recognition may be given to other projects that combines multiple structures or being bold to extend to new fields. The members of the Jury are:

Kim Inhan
Professor of Kyung-Hee University, Korea
John Moebes
Director of Construction at Crate&Barrel
Risto Räty
Deputy CEO and Executive Vice President at Tekla
Chris Sleight
Editor of International Construction magazine
Miklós Szövényi-Lux

One model will be awarded as the public favourite project through web voting. All web voters will participate in a drawing of a Microsoft Surface tablet. Please note that you can only vote for your favorite project once, so only the first vote will count.
