Moira Gemmill Prize for Emerging Architecture
Named in memory of the late V&A Design Director Moira Gemmill, this award for emerging architects celebrates excellence in design and a bright future for designers under the age of 45 from all over the world, with an emphasis on a project completed within the past 18 months. You must be either the sole founder or one of the co-founders of your practice, and shortlisted architects will present to the judging panel in March 2021. There are very few established female architects with a global reputation, and even fewer emerging international talents. This award is supporting and enacting real change.
MJ Long Prize for Excellence in Practice
Now in its second year, this prize celebrates architects who are excelling in UK-based practices, and will be judged on an overall body of work with an emphasis on a project completed within the past 18 months. You might be running a large project for a multinational client or focusing on more modest design interventions within a small practice. Shortlisted architects will present to the judging panel in March 2021. Like countless others, MJ Long’s contribution to many of her buildings is often forgotten, including her input to the British Library (1973-98), designed with Colin St John Wilson. This award seeks to recognise the sometimes obscured contribution of architects within practice.
