Every year the national selectors select five projects from their country (these being Austria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Slovakia and Slovenia) which compete for the Piranesi Award. The most important criterion for the selection is to have made a step forward in finding architectural solutions within a certain "milieu".
The International 2010 Piranesi Award was granted to Maruša Zorec and Matjaž Bolčina from Slovenia for the renovation of the Vetrinje Mansion in Maribor, which subsequently became the headquarters of the Maribor, European Capital of Culture 2012.
Recent Piranesi Award winners were Miha Klinar, Špela Kuhar, Blaž Medja, Uroš Pavasovič, and Robert Potokar from Slovenia (2004), Idis Turato & Saša Randić from Croatia (2005), Dean Lah & Milan Tomac – Enota Architects from Slovenia (2006), Studio Njirić+Arhitekti from Croatia (2007), Ján Studený and Martin Vojta from Slovakia (2008), deca ARCHITECTURE from Greece (2009), Marte.Marte Architekten and Bernardo Bader from Austria in 2011 and 2012, Modus, Sandy Attia, Matteo Scagnol from Italy (2013), Péter Gereben and Balázs Marián from Hungary (2014) and Dinko Peračić from Croatia (2015).
