R+D Awards Frequently Asked Questions

I applied for R+D last year. Can I use the same login?

Yes! Please use the same email you used for your last application and click the “forgot password” button if you can’t remember your password. If the person who applied for the last program is no longer with the company, please create a new account.

 

Will I get emails confirming my registration and submission?

Yes. Please add [email protected] to your safe senders list. If you have not received those emails, please check your spam/junk folder.

 

How many projects can I enter for the awards?

You can enter as many projects as you want! Just remember you will need to pay a registration fee for each.

 

Do I have to mail any physical materials?

No. Please upload all materials to remodelingdesignawards.com.

 

Is my application fee per project?

Yes. If you decide to submit two projects, for example, you will pay the entry fee twice.

 

I was registering my project, but the system asked me to pay my fee before I could upload images. Where do I upload images?

You must register and pay your entrance fee before you can upload your project images and description. Once you pay your fee, you will be taken to the rest of your application.

 

What does each section of my dashboard mean?

  • In Progress - Application(s) you are currently working on
  • In Cart - Application(s) that you need to pay for in order to submit 
  • Complete - Finalized application(s)
  • Needs Attention - Application(s) you have not yet started
  • Expired - Application(s) that were not submitted before the submission deadline. Expired applications will not be considered for an award

The above categories will appear only if you have an application in that category. For example, if you do not have any expired applications, the EXPIRED section will not appear on your dashboard.

 

Why do I have two separate entries in my account for the same project?

The registration/pay first round and submission materials sections will each appear individually on your dashboard along with that step’s status and submission date. For example, if you have submitted both the resigration and submission materials sections of your application, the COMPLETE section of your dashboard will look like this:

 

Can I mention the names of my company, contractors, and consultants in the project description?

No. No identifying information can be included in any part of your application (project name, description, on plans, etc.).

 

How many total photos can I submit? 

You can submit as many photos of your project as the form allows.

 

Can I submit more than one image of the project in the same file?

No. Please do not combine more than one image in the same JPG file; upload single images only.

 

What format should my images be?

All images must be in JPG format with a minimum resolution of 300 DPI. Images cannot exceed 4,000 pixels in length or width.

 

Can I have a refund on my submissions?

We’re sorry, but no. No refunds will be issued. Please be sure to review all eligibility guidelines before submitting a project.
