Each Tucker Design Award event utilizes a unique set of jurors who are esteemed members of the design professionals from whom the award submittals are received. Jury members enjoy exposure to work from around the world as well as the challenging role of choosing the winners. Entries typically range from large commercial projects, to private residences, public monuments and private gardens. The winning selection is purely subjective to each jury.
