Members of the RIBA have to apply for Fellowship, that is then considered by a committee of peers, chaired by the current President of the RIBA.

Extract from the RIBA Website:

"By highlighting these professionals - and the broad spectrum of backgrounds and specialisms in which they work - we can continue to set a benchmark to which future generations of architects can aspire, as well as celebrate the sometimes unsung heroes of our profession. We can also help to broadcast the voices of those of our members who are addressing some of the huge challenges that affect modern society, and help them to continue to drive progress. The RIBA is looking forward to working with all of our Fellows to help continue to serve society through the delivery of better buildings and places, stronger communities and a sustainable environment."
