AJ Small Projects Awards 2015: Deadline extended!


Enter now: The deadline for entering the AJ Small Projects Awards 2015 has been extended until Friday 12 December

A long-established showcase for emerging talent, the AJ Small Projects Awards is our annual search for the best architecture built for less than £250,000

The AJ launched the awards in 1996 to give much-deserved recognition to schemes with a pricetag of less than £150,000.

Although the budget has increased over the last 18 years, the intention of the awards remains the same: ‘From home extensions to restaurants, offices to shops, architects all over the country are busy working on projects that may not make the headlines but nevertheless give a real indication of the design talent in Britain today.’

Chris Dyson Architects’ 13 Wapping Pierhead, a two-storey extension to a grade-II listed terrace in Wapping, won this year’s AJ Small Projects Award, with Gillespie Yunnie’s staircase at the Royal William Yard in Plymouth taking the sustainability prize.

All of the projects entered into the awards will be featured in the AJ Buildings Library with the 24 shortlisted projects published in the AJ, exhibited at the NLA in Store Street, London, and presented in front of our top-flight judging panel in a crit.

For a fifth year in a row, the AJ’s Small Projects are being sponsored and supported by Marley Eternit.

How to enter

You will need to submit 150 words describing your project, along with at least eight photographs, five drawings and one working detail. Entry costs £60 + VAT. All entries must be made digitally via the AJ Buildings Library.

  • Yes, we do accept conservation projects for small projects. But you'll need to be very clear what the budget has been spent on, and make very clear the work that has been carried out so that our shortlisting team can make a reasonable assessment.
