The AJ Student Prize, a free-to-enter prize aimed specifically at UK-based architecture schools, is now open for entries to all students on RIBA-accredited architecture courses. School are invited to submit the final-year projects of their two best students, one at undergraduate level and one at postgraduate level.
The submitted work must have been completed in the 2017/2018 academic season and two winners, one from each level, will be chosen by the judges. Two entries from each school will be published by the AJ in its annual student issue in July, while the winners’ work will be covered in a September issue of the AJ.
This prize is a great platform for universities to showcase and celebrate their students’ work and their architecture departments in teaching the next generation of skilled architects.
How to enter the competition?
First of all, entries must be submitted by the schools and not by individual students at the AJ website. Once there, the school will have to complete the free registration process and entry form and upload the work of each student. In addition, there should also be two paragraphs of 200 words on the executive summary of the project and the executive summary about why the student should win.
In order to be eligible to enter the prize, the school has to be based in the UK, entries must have been produced by students during the most recently completed academic season, each school can submit a maximum of two entries, one project from an undergraduate student and one from a postgraduate student, and the submitted projects should be the final project completed at either one of the two levels.
The deadline to submit the application is Friday, the 8th of June 2018.
