We are looking for examples of collaborative workflows and model based processes to support your entry. Each participant can enter numerous models.

Entrants must provide:


Tekla has the right to reject a model from the competition if any required material is missing.


By entering a model to the competition, you give the permission to Tekla to use the model and images of the model for marketing and sales demonstration purposes (including e.g. publishing the model to Tekla Web Viewer or Tekla BIMsight application and using project information, images, artist impressions and photographs in Tekla marketing material).


Voting is open to the public and can be promoted by the competing company. Only one vote per person will be counted. The most popular models voted for by the public will then be put through to the appointed jury.
