TYPES OF ENTRIES
SINGLE ENTRY: One company is entering this project, and
will receive full winner benefits if the project wins. ENTRY
FEES ARE $190 FOR THE FIRST SINGLE ENTRY, AND $150 FOR EACH
TEAM ENTRY: This project was designed by one company and
construction was performed by another. Both companies are
entering as equal partners, and both will receive full winner
benefits if the project wins. There is no requirement to enter a
project as a Team Entry. This is an option for either the design
firm or the remodeler. ENTRY FEES ARE $250 FOR THE FIRST FULL
TEAM ENTRY, AND $175 FOR EACH ADDITIONAL FULL TEAM ENTRY.
2016 ELIGIBILITY: Chrysalis has a three-year eligibility
period. For 2016, projects must have been completed after

fall into this eligibility period, and did not win a Chrysalis
Award, may be re-submitted for the 2016 program.

THE ENTRY DEADLINE FOR THE 2016 PROGRAM

Digital Entry Format
Digital entries must be submitted on a disc and mailed with the
Transmittal Form and entry fees.
If you have already submitted a digital entry into another
competition, Chrysalis will accept your entry in that format
without changes required.
IF YOU ARE CREATING A NEW DIGITAL ENTRY, HERE IS THE SUGGESTED
Organize your entry into three folders.
Maximum 3 pages (pdf or Word document)
Maximum 10 images
Maximum 10 images
Images and files should be labeled to identify the content.
Individual images must not exceed 10Mb.
Chrysalis does not disqualify entries due to format, but for
those of you who would like a suggestion about how to present
your materials, here is one idea.
After the cover page, insert a large format photo of the best
“after” shot on the first right-hand page, just to lead off with
a “wow” photo.
After that, insert the pages with your text about the project.
The text should be as concise as possible to be sure the judges
will read it all.
After the text, begin your “before” and “after” photos. If the
photos are large, put the “before” on the left page and the
corresponding “after” on the right. If they are smaller format,
put the “before” on the left side of the page and the “after” on
the right. If you’re going vertical, put the “after” on top and
the “before” on the bottom.
If you are including floorplans (which is always a good idea),
put them at the end of the entry.
Keep the number of photos reasonable. If you’re addressing
multiple rooms in an entry, focus the photography on the most
dramatic rooms. “During construction” photos are not necessary
unless they display a significant challenge that was overcome.
“Before” photos serve to help the judges understand the scope of
the project, but you are not required to have one “before” for
DIGITAL IMAGES: Please provide a
disc with the digital images of the project.
