RIBA President's Medals

The RIBA has been awarding the President's Medals since the 1850s to promote excellence in the study of architecture, and they are widely regarded as the best student awards for architecture in the world. The President's Medals website features all the nominations since 1998, and includes a searchable database of projects and statements of intent from the students, a definition of their educational policy and aims from the relevant schools of architecture, a justification of their nominations by tutors, and an judging panels explanation of the decision-making process by the judges.
