RIBA Awards

Celebrating architecture in the UK and around the world

The RIBA Awards are judged by physically visiting each shortlisted project. Due to significant concern about the spread of coronavirus, the judging of all RIBA Awards for buildings has been postponed. Entrants have been informed.

We are closely monitoring and following official government advice regarding coronavirus. When the lockdown is lifted - such that normal movement can resume again - we anticipate that judging will restart. We hope to conclude the awards programme in the second half of this year. Judging for other RIBA student medals and achievement prizes, that do not require building visits, are unaffected.

Read more about our guidance on the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.

The RIBA has been celebrating outstanding work for over 180 years. Our awards and prizes are regarded internationally as a mark of excellence, recognising the best architecture, architects, research and students.

"Winning the RIBA Yorkshire Building of the Year was a great honour and gave us excellent exposure to new and existing clients." - Fergus Feilden, Director at Feilden Fowles, winner of RIBA Yorkshire Building of the Year Award 2019.

To enter a UK project, you must have a current individual RIBA Chartered Membership number or RIBA International Fellowship. The lead architect of the scheme must be a current RIBA Chartered Member.

2020 entries have now closed. Submissions for RIBA Awards 2021 will open in December 2020.

Entries to the RIBA International Awards will re-open in 2021. Eligibility criteria may vary.
