The architectural competitions are an instrument looking for innovation and solving complex problems of the metropolis. The competitions are a legal system with the objective of hiring public works, as in the case of social housing. It is recommended by the Law 8666, the "open" competition, characterized by its anonymity and equality, as "preferably" applied, giving place to the hiring justified by "public knowledge", named as "invited" competitions. The Brazilian housing deficit is approximately 6 million homes. Aiming to reverse those numbers, the Brazilian Federal Government launched since 2007, a Program named "Minha Casa Minha Vida", which until now held about 1 million homes. Moreover, Spain has built more than 5 million dwellings between 2000 and 2005, yielding known "housing bubble" that contributed to the current financial and economic crisis in the country. For good and ill, the Spanish experience is an important example, aiming the realization of social housing by the architectural competitions. That way, a case study was chosen as methodology by evaluating two architectural competitions for social housing, which are: Renova SP Competition, organized by the Department of Housing of the State of São Paulo, in 2011 and Vallecas 49, sponsored by Madrid¿s Municipal Agency, in 2006. Given this scenario, this research aims to identify the parameters utilized in the organization of both competitions by the parallel between each public notice, and the comparison of them with the judgment protocol, further on the interviews with the participants, promoters and juries. From this method, it was possible to identify the similarities and the contrasts that prejudiced or qualified the process in both cases, so that it is proposed a kind of guideline, which aims to facilitate and improve the formulation of futures architectural competitions.
