What is the RIBA Awards Programme?
The RIBA Plaque
The RIBA Awards programme champions and celebrates the best of British architecture. The RIBA has been giving awards for buildings since 1966. No matter the shape, size, budget or location, all RIBA Award winning-schemes set the standard for good, excellent and outstanding architecture all across the country.
The Regional and RIBA National awards are judged and presented locally and culminate in the prestigious RIBA Stirling Prize presented every autumn. The RIBA awards reflect changes in architectural tastes, technology and aspirations, but at their core is a commitment to the understanding and enjoyment of buildings and spaces, while they continually set and reward new standards in British architecture.
How does it work?
From 3 December 2012 RIBA chartered members and RIBA International Fellows are invited to submit their entries to the 2013 RIBA awards programme. There is one simple online entry process for all of our awards.
For our UK Nations and Regions (excluding Scotland), once a scheme is submitted it will be considered for Regional Awards and Regional special prizes (excluding Scotland and Northern Ireland), and if successful could also win an RIBA National Award, the winners of which will be announced at celebratory events across the UK on June 12 2013.
For our RIBA National award winners the journey continues after June with the selection of the National Special awards shortlists and the RIBA Stirling Prize shortlist and ends the year with the RIBA Stirling Prize event, where the final winners are announced and celebrated.
For members and fellows building outside of the UK, the same online entry process as above applies (with an additional A1 information board posted to the RIBA). Once a scheme is submitted it will be considered for either an RIBA EU Award or an RIBA International Award. If successful the winners will be announced on 12 June 2013 and showcased at the RIBA Stirling Prize event in October 2013. All RIBA International Award winners will compete for the RIBA Lubetkin Prize shortlist and the winner will be announced at the same event.
