RA SHOW AWARDS LAUNCHED The AJ/Bovis Lend Lease Awards, for the best architectural work in the Royal Academy Summer Show, take place again this year.
The awards, which have been made annually for the past 22 years, are worth a total of £15,000. The premier prize, for the best piece in the show, is worth £10,000, while a £5,000 prize goes to the best work by a first-time exhibitor.
In each case the award will be made for a project rather than a completed building. Winners and a selection of other entries will be published in the AJ.
All work appearing in the exhibition will be considered by the award judges.
Entry forms for inclusion in the show are available from the Summer Exhibition Office, Royal Academy, Burlington Gardens, Piccadilly, London W1V 0DS. Entrants may also telephone 020 7300 5929 or 020 7300 5969 and register with a credit card from 24 January. A stamped addressed envelope is required for postal registrations. The deadline for completed entry forms is 23 March 2005.
