The Jonathan and Victoria Ball Award
Following the success of the competition that was run for the first time in 2011, the Worshipful Company of Chartered Architects, with the support of RIBA, have awarded drawing prizes again this year to students from the London Schools of Architecture.
The prize money has been increased following a donation from Jonathan and Victoria Ball.
The aim is to encourage excellence in traditional drawing, but computer generated images were also considered.
Schools of Architecture were invited to submit one drawing for RIBA Part 1 and one for RIBA Part 2.
The first prize was £300, with a runner up of £150, in each category.
The 2014 winners were:
Part 1 Winner: Anna Pizova, The Cass, London Metropolitan University
Part 1 Runner Up: Dan Rymer Trenholm, University of Greenwich
Part 2 Winner: Laurence York, University of Greenwich
Part 2 Runner Up: Suzi Pain, The Cass, London Metropolitan University
