Nominations for projects that pose a conflict of interest with the 2021 jury members will be held for consideration in 2022 when the jury members rotate and no conflict is in place. Those situations include, but are not limited to, the following: (i) the juror is related to a submission as a member of the design firm, development team, construction contractor or subcontractor, or as a client commissioning the work to a nominee, (ii) the juror is a relative of or has a close personal relationship or friendship with the nominee that makes him/her unable to act in an objective fashion, or (iii) there is a personal affiliation so close that the appearance of a conflict of interest may be assumed by the general public.
