Why Should I Enter?
The RIAI Awards are judged by an expert jury of award-winning architects and renowned assessors.
The RIAI Irish Architecture Awards are accompanied by an effective and far-reaching national media campaign. Traditionally, the winner of the Public Choice Award has been announced on RTE Radio One Morning Ireland while RTE Six One News has covered the awards for television. In addition, there has been substantial media coverage in national and regional newspapers as well as regional radio. The audience reach in 2016 has been over 2 million.
The RIAI Awards are accompanied by a Digital Marketing and Social Media campaign.
The RIAI Awards are accompanied by in-depth publication in Architecture Ireland and The RIAI Annual Review.
The RIAI Awards are accompanied by a public engagement programme – our Walks + Talks of award-winning buildings, led by the architects.
