The BERKELEY PRIZE Competition was established in 1998, made possible by a generous gift of JUDITH LEE STRONACH to the Department of Architecture in the College of Environmental Design at the University of California, Berkeley.

Following are some guidelines to keep in mind as you write your proposal:

Be sure that you can, personally, visit those you identify.
You must be able to, personally, visit at least one of their projects if it is built or being built.
If the project is not yet built or theoretical, you must talk directly with them about it.

With your description, provide two photos of the most representative of their projects or proposed projects - the one you visited or discussed and another. If you are selected as a semifinalist, you will be asked in your long essay to respond to a further question regarding the selections you have made in your Proposal.
