The Milka Bliznakov Prize, confers in recognition of research that advances knowledge of women's contributions to architecture and related design fields, was created to encourage the use and growth of the International Archive of Women in Architecture (IAWA). The Board of Advisors of the IAWA, following a two-stage process, awards the annual prize of $1000. The first stage is an open review of proposals that are submitted, the second stage is the extension of invitations to selected finalists. The submission of proposals must be postmarked by September 1, 2002. Proposals should consist of a 250-500-word discussion of the original projects, research or scholarly work relative to the IAWA collections. They should exemplify the contributions and advancement of women in recognition of their careers in design. Details about the IAWA and the Bliznakov Prize can be found at http://spec.lib.vt.edu/iawa/. For more information, contact Donna Dunay, AIA, via email or phone at (540) 231-5512.
