The editorial board of Architecture Ireland – with support from Forbo – is delighted to launch the second edition of the Student Writing Prize, which is open to all students of architecture and architectural technology on the island of Ireland. The objective of the prize is to nurture and recognise the importance of writing in architecture.
Students are invited to contribute an article of no more than 1000 words on a theme of their choice – whether a building or a book; an architect or a movement; both contemporary and historic subject matters will be considered.
With the support of Forbo, we have established a main prize of €1,000 for the winning article and further prizes for the runners up (€2,500 overall prize fund). The winner will be published in Architecture Ireland, while the runners-up will be featured on AI online.
The Judging Panel: Stephen Best, architect, educator and writer; Dr. Ellen Rowley; architectural historian, writer and editor; Michael K. Hayes, architectural graduate; AI online editor and editor of 2ha; and Dr Sandra O’Connell, editor of Architecture Ireland.
The Deadline and How to Submit
Submission deadline is 10 June 2016. Submissions should be sent as a word doc – marked Architecture Ireland Student Writing Prize – to the editor, firstname.lastname@example.org.
