A candidate in the "Completed Buildings - Higher Education and Research" category is the new building of the Faculty of Radio and Television of the University of Silesia in Katowice. It was designed by BAAS arquitectura, Grupa 5 Architekci and Maleccy Biuro Projektowe.

Among the already completed projects, two designs compete in the "Completed Buildings - Production Energy and Recycling" category: BILAMED pharmaceutical storage with office part in Pisz designed by 3XA studio, as well as the Aquatic Center - `Wodny Park Tychy` designed by TKHolding.
