Historic Buildings & Places are now inviting submissions for the 2023 Stephen Croad Prize 

The closing date has been extended to 31 August 2023. Details are given below.  

Do you have a new discovery on historical buildings of England and Wales?  

Stephen Croad was an author, researcher and archivist of architectural history and during his career and in his voluntary roles made a profound impact on our knowledge and understanding of the UK’s architectural history.

In Stephen’s memory Historic Buildings & Places now run an annual competition, with a prize award of £500, to encourage new architectural research and writing. 

In the spirit of Stephen’s own research and practice, the essay should be on factually verifiable, documented new discoveries on the historic buildings of England and Wales, whether less examined or part of the established canon. 

Please read the linked document below for the full set of conditions for making a submission. Please note the deadline has now been extended to 31 August 2023.

The deadline for submission is 31 August 2023. 

There is no age limit for contributors, and we welcome all contributions.
