AJ Women in Architecture awards

The AJ is pleased to announce three new honours in support of women in architecture, including the return of the prestigious Jane Drew Prize.

Drew (pictured) was a spirited advocate for forwarding women’s position in an often male-dominated profession. This annual honour will recognise the greatest contribution to the status of women in architecture.

1. THE JANE DREW PRIZE
Both men and women are eligible, as are non-architects influencing the wider architectural industry, eg politicians, clients and planners. Nominations should include a maximum 500-word statement outlining the candidate’s contribution to the status and profile of women in architecture in the UK. A supporting list of signatures may also be included, plus up to 10 pages of supplementary material (press clippings, photography of built work, etc.)

2. WOMAN ARCHITECT OF THE YEAR
Design award open to those working in the UK or for a practice headquartered in the UK. Judges will be looking for excellence in design, thought leadership and a role model for aspiring architects. Applicants should submit a 300-word citation about their work and practice, plus images and descriptions from five projects. Open to applications from architects working within practices as well as sole practitioners.

3. EMERGING WOMAN ARCHITECT OF THE YEAR
Design award open to those working in the UK or for a practice headquartered in the UK. Judges will be looking for excellence in design, thought leadership and a bright future ahead. Applicants should submit a 300-word citation about their work and practice, plus images and descriptions from five projects. Emerging architects must be under 40. Open to applications from architects working within practices as well as sole practitioners.

Applicants can nominate themselves or someone else. A supporting list of signatures may also be included. Entries should be sent as a .PDF document to womeninarchitectureawards@emap.com.
