You can explore the myriad plaudits from IHBC Gus Astley Student Award winners in a new website update of testimonials, and see how 2018 winners have secured places on Nottingham’s 2019 School: ‘Heritage, Risk and Resilience’, 4-6 July, while entries for 2019 close on July 31.
IHBC Director Seán O’Reilly said: ‘The IHBC’s annual Gus Astley Student Award for 2019 is open for entries and, as for each year, closes on 31 July. And now anyone can get a refreshed taste of the benefits of success from the updated testimonials on the web site. And entry of your ordinary coursework is always only a few clicks away.’
‘So if you have relevant coursework from any UK taught course – under-graduate or post-graduate, and from 2018 OR 2019 – be sure to submit it online and on time to have a chance to receive a cash prize at the IHBC’s Annual School in Brighton in 2020.’
‘For the 2019 Award, as ever, a cash prize of £500 is on offer to the winner, with smaller cash awards to any commended entries. Free places at the IHBC’s 2020 Annual School, valued at around £500, are also offered to all successful entrants, so they can receive prizes in person at the School Dinner in Brighton in 2020.’
Summary details of the IHBC Student Awards include:
- The Student Award for 2019 is presented for an outstanding item of taught-coursework accepted as part of either under-graduate or post-graduate courses ending in the academic years either to 31 July 2018 OR 31 July 2019.
- The subject should relate to one aspect or more of ‘Built or Historic Environment Conservation’ in its widest sense, including, for example, its evaluation (eg history, research or surveying), management (eg policy, finance, planning or operations such as site management), and/ or intervention (eg design, technology or architecture).
- Submission for this award is ONLY possible online, but if your coursework can’t be easily digitised, we’re happy to receive a suitable digital record of it, such as a film record, just as long as the record can be authenticated by your course tutor in accordance with our guidance.
