In celebration of HRH The Prince of Wales's sixtieth birthday in November, The Georgian Group, in association with The Prince's Drawing School and the Traditional Architecture Group of the Royal Institute of British Architects, is organising a prize competition for a measured drawing of a Georgian building. The aim of the competition, which is open to British, Commonwealth and US citizens under 40, is to promote and reward excellence in measured architectural drawing and to encourage close study and understanding of Georgian buildings.

For the purposes of the competition, the term 'Georgian building' means any building completed in the period 1660-1840, whether in Britain or elsewhere. First prize is £1000, second prize is £750 and third prize is £500. Winning and short listed entries will be exhibited in London.

The deadline for entries is 19 September 2008. Full details and an entry form can be downloaded from www.georgiangroup.org.uk. For further information contact Robert Bargery, Director, The Georgian Group, 6 Fitzroy Square, London W1T 5DX or telephone 44 020 7529 8928.

Hi Don,

Me too. I just checked and there is an extra dot included in the string after org.uk. when it should just be org.uk

i.e. http://www.georgiangroup.org.uk/docs/grants/index.php?id=10:42:128:0

Please bring back the edit button !

Regards

Ken Hume

Instead of bringing back the edit button, we're moving the forums to a new site, which, curiously, is said to be easier. It has to do with the quality of the hosting service, rather than the software itself.

I'll keep you posted.

Should happen this coming week, if the planets align.
