Emerging Architect Prize

This email came floating through our office this week, for the Emerging Architect Prize. Lets hope we get lots of entries from WA.

Emerging Architect Prize

The Australian Institute of Architects is running the Emerging Architect Prize across all Australian states and territories for the first time this year.

This Prize has been developed to acknowledge an individual emerging architect’s contribution to architectural practice, education, design excellence and community involvement, which advances the profession’s role within the public arena. The National winner, who will receive $2 000 from the Institute’s Supporting Corporate partner Lockwood, will be announced in March 2011 at the Australian Achievement in Architecture Awards.

The WA Chapter, in association with Merge, will be awarding the State Prize in the next few months, with entries closing the 30th June. This is a fantastic opportunity to recognise an emerging architect in your firm, or nominate yourself. Entrants must be AIA members, registered architects, and graduated within the previous 10 years. If you can please forward this email to everyone and anyone you think may be interested, it would be appreciated. It would be great to recognise the tremendous talent of WA’s emerging architects with a large pool of entrants.

The Entry, Eligibility and Judging criteria are now on line. Click here for more info.

  1. $2000 is a bit stingy..travel scholarships at uni are 10 i think.. and how many emerging archies are registered?? please do one for unregistered!!

  2. They couldn’t have an emerging architects prize for the unregistered – it would have to be called the “Emerging Gradutes with Architectural Degree” prize, or some such phrase which would be applicable in all jurisdictions!
