RIBA call for entries to President's Awards

The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) is calling for entries for this year’s RIBA President’s Awards for Research. The deadline for submissions is 15 June 2009.

This is the fourth year of the awards, which are presented annually to reward and encourage outstanding research in architecture.

Entries are invited in the following three categories:
PhD Thesis: for the best PhD Thesis from an RIBA-validated School of Architecture
University-located Research: for a completed research project based or initiated in an RIBA-validated School of Architecture
Professional Practice-located Research: for a completed research project initiated by an RIBA member or RIBA Chartered Practice

Entries will be judged on their contribution to architecture, originality, significance and rigour, and the winning entries must be regarded as an exceptional contribution to architectural knowledge. The judges may also award commendations to one or more other shortlisted submissions in each category. The judging panel, composed of practitioners and academics, is appointed by the RIBA Research and Development Committee and approved by the President of the RIBA.
