The Forum Prize is a recent institution, a development of the prize for »Sweden's best interior design« awarded annually by the magazine Forum from 2000 to 2004. A year ago the magazine changed direction, moving its focus from Swedish interior architecture to architecture, interior and design in all the Nordic countries, and the prize has been adapted accordingly. The Forum Prize will be awarded for the first time at a ceremony early next year and is the only architectural prize spanning all the Nordic production for 2005.

The selection process takes place in two stages, of which the first is now complete. Each of the five Nordic countries has been represented by its own selection committee. The Danish committee has comprised Sólveig Berg Björnsdóttir, Gudmundur Oddur Magnússon and Guja Dögg Hauksdóttir (more info below). The task of the national committees has been to designate the leading items from their respective countries or by their fellow-countrymen abroad. The committees have been free to select from among all projects completed between 1 October 2004 and 30 September 2005.
