The Stirling Prize is awarded annually by the Royal Institute of British Architects for "the building which has been the most significant for the evolution of architecture in the past year".

The winner, to be announced in the autumn, gets £20,000. The prize is named after British architect Sir James Stirling (1926-1992).
