2022 Awards

Great design raises the liveability for everyone in our City. It is more than just an improved look and feel (although it is that too), it encourages creativity, engenders a feeling of safety and can create sustainable spaces that lead to a greener city. Through design, we shape our City and conserve our heritage. In short, it’s worth celebrating!

That’s why we’re proud to call on architects to help us celebrate the incredible work they do designing our City spaces. Please read the details of our categories and selection criteria carefully and submit your entry for the 2022 awards. Submissions are open now and close on 31 January 2022.
