RIBA Awards: call for entries

The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) is once again on the lookout for potential RIBA Prize winners.Following on from the success of the Maggie’s Centre in London, last year’s Stirling Prize winner designed by Rogers, Stirk, Harbour + Partners, the search has begun to find the best examples of new British architecture. Practices up and down the country are urged to submit projects of architectural excellence into the 2010 RIBA Awards scheme.

The RIBA awards programme, supported by the Architects’ Journal, is unchanged from the 2009 Awards. RIBA Awards will be judged locally and announced in each RIBA region on 20 May. The RIBA Stirling Prize shortlist is selected following further visits to winners of the RIBA Awards and of RIBA European Awards for buildings in the rest of the EU.

Now in its fifth year, the Lubetkin Prize shortlist is drawn from winners of RIBA International Awards for buildings in the rest of the world. The Lubetkin Prize will be presented to the most outstanding work of architecture outside the UK and the European Union by an RIBA member.

All RIBA Award winners will be eligible for a series of special awards to be presented at the RIBA Stirling Prize Dinner in London on 9 October 2010.

Any building by an RIBA Chartered member or RIBA International Fellow is eligible to enter all awards. Buildings must be completed and occupied between the dates of 1 January 2008 and 19 February 2010. The closing date for entries is at 17.00 on 19 February 2010.

Entry forms can now be downloaded from www.architecture.com/awards.
