Tips & Requirements
Up to 10 images (JPG/PDF) and 1 PDF can be submitted per entry.

Entries should also include as much details as possible, including images of each side of the building or environment along with the contextual surroundings. Please include floor and small-scale (8.5”x11”) site plans showing the project in its context.
In the case that the project is a group of buildings, entrants should provide a rendering that fully illustrates the complete project. If the entry contains an alteration or restoration, please include both “before” and “after” images.
Entries can be submitted as completed, in-progress or conceptual works.
Description of the project should be limited to 500 words or less.
Anyone can vote online during the designated voting period.
Entries are judged at random, without comparison to other entries in a category. Blind judging will be enforced. All entrants’ data are removed from entries to prevent bias/conflict of interest. Judges will score on a scale of 1-100, based on aspects such as luxurious experience, excellence, uniqueness, reputation, brand awareness, and personalization. What we pay attention to most are the flair, character and experience that make it unique.
The judges’ evaluation score (50%) and public voting (50%) on the hotel will be submitted to the panel and will form the basis for their decision to confirm the winning status of each hotel. Entries with a score between 85 and 100 points are Regal MUSE winners, whereas entries with a score between 60 and 84 points are Royal MUSE winners.
Winners and the Gala Awards Ceremony
Winners are determined after the judging is concluded at the end of the voting period, and interim results are then released to the respective hotels. Participants will be invited to attend the Gala Awards Ceremony, where the official winners are announced, also revealing the category and level of the award achieved (Regal MUSE/Royal MUSE).
