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.
