The Piranesi Award is the first professional international architectural award which is awarded in Slovenia and is part of the international conference Piran Days of Architecture (PDA). It was first awarded in 1989 to Bogdan Bogdanović for the Dudik Memorial Park in Vukovar, Croatia. It is named after the 18th-century Italian artist and architect Giovanni Battista Piranesi (1720–1778), whose family comes from Piran.

Prizes are awarded the best realized architectural projects which have emerged in the last two years in the countries of Central Europe: Austria, the Czech Republic, Greece, Croatia, Italy, Hungary, Slovakia and Slovenia. Since 2018, Serbia has joined this list of countries, Bosnia and Herzegovina in 2019, and Montenegro in 2020.

The projects presented at the “Pyrenees” exhibition are selected and nominated by the national selectors of the mentioned countries at the end of October. Each selector can propose five projects.
