The motto of the Awards is 'Architecture as Art'.

The main objective of the Awards is to acknowledge and promote architectural and designer projects that amount to works of art.

The best projects by competitors will be added to the collection of the Architectural Graphics Fund of the Museum of St. Petersburg History and will take part in an annual exhibition at the Peter and Paul Fortress.
