DoCoMoMo Ireland Dissertation Prize
The annual DoCoMoMo Ireland prize is open to all undergraduate and postgraduate students registered on the island of Ireland in the field of architecture, art history and design and aims to encourage research into the legacy of the Modern Movement in Ireland. The award is for an essay or dissertation completed during the academic year 2014-2015 that offers the best documentation of modernist architectural or urban thinking in Ireland or which proposes a better way to protect or conserve this heritage. The call for submissions is deliberately broad in its scope and can include research about buildings, designers, technical design, monuments, public space or structures. Submissions deadline is 12pm, Tuesday 30th June 2015.
The winning entry will receive €300, there will be two runner-up prizes of €100 and it is intended to publish winning entries. All short-listed entries will be submitted to the Irish Architectural Archive. The winners and short-list will be announced at a DoCoMoMo event during Autumn 2015.
