RIBA Awards 2012 - Submissions opened
Text: Florian Maier
Submissions are open and there is now one point of entry for all RIBA Awards.
By entering the awards online your scheme will be entered automatically for:
- RIBA regional awards (including a series of special awards)
- RIBA Awards national special awards (RIBA Manser Medal, Stephen Lawrence Prize and RIBA Client of the Year)
- RIBA Stirling Prize
- RIBA Lubetkin Prize (international schemes outside the EU).
Regional awards in EnglandThere are no separate calls for entry for pre-existing regional awards such as the White Rose in Yorkshire or the Downland in the south and south-east of England. Instead, these awards are incorporated into one system extending from RIBA regional awards to the RIBA Stirling Prize, including a series of new regional special awards.
The first level of award is known as:
- the RIAS Awards in Scotland
- Gwobrau Pensaernïaeth Cymru/Welsh Architecture Awards in Wales
- the RSUA Design Awards in Northern Ireland.
National awards also lead to the RIBA Awards and ultimately the RIBA Stirling Prize. In Scotland the RIAS Awards will also form the longlist for the Doolan Prize.
Deadlines for entry
- London, EU and International: 17 February 2012
- all other Regions: 24 February 2012
Entries are submitted to the region or nation in which the building is situated.

RIBA Award winners 2011
The 2011 award-winning buildings range geographically from a winery in Spain to a community hall on the Scottish Hebridean island of Raasay, and in style from the Royal Shakespeare Theatre in Stratford to Love Shack - a self-build hideaway in the Lake District National Park. The recently completed Velodrome is the first ever 2012 Olympics event building to win an architecture prize and is one of five RIBA Awards for Hopkins Architects, a practice previously shortlisted three times for the RIBA Stirling Prize.
