The Royal Institute of British Architects is now welcoming entries for the 2020 RIBA President’s Medals from schools of architecture worldwide.
 
Awarded for the first time in 1836, the President’s Medals are the RIBA’s oldest awards and are considered one of the most prestigious education prize schemes in the world. Since their early days, the aim of the awards has been to celebrate the contribution of architecture to social betterment by rewarding innovation and competence in architectural education.
Participation in these awards is by invitation only. In addition to inviting RIBA-validated schools of architecture to enter the awards, each year we select a number of non-validated schools to participate. I am delighted to invite your school to enter this year’s awards by nominating entries in the following categories:
•    One dissertation for the RIBA Dissertation Medal (produced by a student/s who is/are enrolled in, is/are about to complete, or has/have completed the current or most recent academic year of either a RIBA Part 1 or a RIBA Part 2 professional qualification in Architecture, or at any stage of the undergraduate professional qualification in Architecture in the case of a course not validated by the RIBA) to be submitted by the deadline of 3pm (GMT) on Friday 31 July 2020
•    Up to TWO design projects for the RIBA Bronze Medal (produced by (a) student(s) who is/are enrolled in, is/are about to complete, or has/have completed a RIBA Part 1 qualification in the current or most recent academic year, or the first three years of a professional qualification in Architecture in the case of a course not validated by the RIBA) to be submitted by the deadline of 3pm (GMT) on Friday 18 September 2020
•    Up to TWO design projects for the RIBA Silver Medal (produced by (a) student(s) who is/are enrolled in, is/are about to complete, or has/have completed a RIBA Part 2 qualification in the current or most recent academic year, or the last two of five or more years of a professional qualification in Architecture in the case of a course not validated by the RIBA) to be submitted by the deadline of 3pm (GMT) on Thursday 24 September 2020
 
Please note that, this year, in the context of social distancing measures adopted to deal with the spread of the COVID-19 virus, the submission and assessment processes adopted to deliver the RIBA President’s Medals will be entirely digital. 
 
To this end, nominees must save their entries in a folder on a cloud storage platform (such as Dropbox, WeTransfer, Microsoft OneDrive, Google Drive, etc.) and submit a URL link to access and download the folder and its content to Link identifier #identifier__46646-2presidents.medals@riba.org. RIBA staff will download the entries and process them for judging and upload them to the award’s website Link identifier #identifier__108073-3www.presidentsmedals.com
