The TRANSFER Architecture Video Award is an independent award, launched in 2019, to recognise the most creative and innovative short films in the field of architecture, city or landscape worldwide. The 2019 edition of the award attracted the participation of over 300 videos from more than 50 countries. Video is becoming increasingly instrumental in analysing architecture and the human environment, and is directly related to the digital networks that underpin contemporary communication. With the TRANSFER Architecture Video Award, we aim to highlight the contributions that best represent new means of knowledge and analysis of architecture using video as a support.

Short films must contribute to exploring innovative ways of analysing and experiencing architecture, city or landscape, demonstrate the relevance of the topic and its social impact, and possess a high standard of production. Short films must have a maximum duration of five minutes and must have been produced within the past three years (2019–21).

The award is global in scope and open to filmmakers, architects, artists, photographers or any individual or group whose video work is related to architecture, city or landscape.
