    The RIAI Awards are judged by an expert jury of award-winning architects and renowned assessors.

    The RIAI Irish Architecture Awards are accompanied by an effective and far-reaching national media campaign. Traditionally, the winner of the Public Choice Award has been announced on RTE Radio One Morning Ireland while RTE Six One News has covered the awards for television. In addition, there has been substantial media coverage in national and regional newspapers as well as regional radio. The audience reach in 2015 has been over 2 million.
