The Richard Guy Wilson Prize for Excellence in The Study of Buildings, Landscapes and Places is an annual prize that recognizes the work of any full-time UVA student, regardless of rank or school, who produces the best work of scholarship or creativity that relates to architectural history or landscape history. Accepted submissions include, but are not limited to writing, design, poetry, painting, legal/business briefs, scholarly/research essays, film, and photography. The prize, which comes with a $5,000 cash award, will be selected by a small committee of University faculty. Richard Guy Wilson joined the UVA School of Architecture in 1976. For 40 years, he has had a major impact on countless students through his knowledge, teaching, mentorship—and his wit. The Richard Guy Wilson Prize is a wonderful tribute to RGW, and the Architectural History department, the longest standing of its kind in American higher education. Submissions should be sent to Carly Griffith by 5:00 pm on May 25, 2017.
