The Isle of Wight Society

Conservation Awards


Introduction to the Awards

The Award Scheme is for the promotion of buildings and the environment on the Island. It works with the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA, Isle of Wight). RIBA Website (South East)

Our aims are to encourage a high standard of planning, architecture, and the conservation of buildings and their setting on the Island. Entries will be judged mainly on their quality of design and the work overall and also the visual impact on the environment.

For 2018 the scope of awards is being broadened and entries from, for example, individuals undertaking renovation work or ecology conservation on a building project will be considered.

The competition is open to private individuals, corporate bodies, churches and other communities. It embraces small and large scale works raging from staircases and fountains to Roman excavations, fortifications and landscaping.

There is an entry fee to cover administration costs. Parish and Town Councils and charities may be exempt from the fee.

Previous awards and acknowledgments have been given to private and royal dwellings, railway conservation projects, seafront improvements and cemetery chapel conservation.

The Awards, given at the ceremony, comprise of a blue plaque for the building owner plus certificates for the architect, contractor and occasionally, craftsmen. Certificates of Merit are given to the runners up.
