Should members of a new chapter who have nominations not boycott this?

Was Oriam not shortlisted last year? Second time lucky maybe?

Can the New Chapter advise as to whether it's members are boycotting these awards, and if not, why not?!

Some people from collective and Malcolm Fraser are. The members are listed on their website on the letter/petition they wrote to RIAS.

#2, #5, #6 What has wining a book voucher got to do with New Chapter?
Besides "boycotting" is a rather strong word to use regarding a fairly meaningless awards ceremony.
Have a cup of tea and relax.

By the way, my vote goes to Bath Street Collective, not just for the architecture, but for the whole concept.
Although Humpty House gets a special mention for Best Project Name.

does seem a bit strange that some new chapter members trying to discredit the RIAS consistently are happy to pay to enter into their awards...
