In Collaboration with 

SoFloNOMA, AIA Miami & HKS

SAY IT LOUD exhibition has been invited to feature Diverse Designers of Florida in October of 2023. In line with our mission to elevate the contributions of women and BIPOC designers, architect, engineers and planners, we are inviting you to submit.

To date, our SAY IT LOUD exhibitions have been viewed by an estimate total 60,000 visitors since January 2017. From inception, multiple online publications (such as Forbes, Curbed and The Architects Newspaper) with large subscription bases have helped promote the exhibitions further expanding its impact. One featured firm expressed an increase in business which they attributed to being featured in SAY IT LOUD.

Please provide the requested information below to stand a chance of being shortlisted as one of the few designers exhibited in SAY IT LOUD - Florida.

Deadline to Submit - August 31, 2023 11:59 EST 

We will notify the Featured Designers - October 2023


  • Submission period  February 13, 2023 - August 31 2023

  • Selected Architects/Designers Announced: February Launch of the Physical and Virtual Exhibition 



  • Applicants are required to live and/or work in Florida and be women or BIPOC designer, who have a significant role in the submitted project. 

  • Projects submitted for consideration may be located outside of Florida.

  • Women (She, Her) (female or transgender) of any ethnicity and Black, Indigenous, Person of Color

  • Built / Unbuilt Work 

We strongly encourage submissions that reflect a broad and inclusive definition of design excellence. Each entry is judged for the success with which it has met its individual requirements. Submissions must exhibit design achievement that demonstrates exemplary skill and creativity in the resolution and integration of formal, functional, and technical requirements, including ecological stewardship and social responsibility. Submissions should also reflect a strong sense of place, history, and purpose.

Architecture is a profession in which design capability is prized and intellectual property is the most common proof of worth, in terms of talent and experience. Contemporary practice is by its nature collaborative. The more complex the project, or the more prolonged the design and construction process, the more individuals may lay valid claim to credit for some part of the work.

Please comply with the AIA Code of Ethics for credit and attribution below.
