The design-led competition covers recently completed buildings in European countries participating in the European Copper in Architecture Campaign. To be eligible, all entries must incorporate cladding, roofing or other architectural elements of copper or copper alloys, such as bronze and brass. But any building type can be entered - from major landmark projects to more modest buildings. There is also a discretionary award for innovation in specific areas of relevance today, such as sustainable building, economical construction, prefabrication, conservation or new uses of copper.
Entry forms and details of the 2009 Awards are available at www.copperinfo.co.uk/arch/ Entries must be submitted by 31 May 2009 and the winners will be announced at a presentation in London, UK during September 2009.
