Open to all: nominate a great City, Town, Neighbourhood, Street or Place for The Urbanism Awards

The Urbanism Awards are the Academy‚Äôs primary platform for recognising the best, most enduring or most improved urban environments. 

Through the Awards we promote and learn from places that demonstrate positive social, physical and economic urbanism. 

After two years away, we return our focus to visiting, assessing and learning from great places. Help support this work by nominating a great City, Town, Neighbourhood, Street or Place that you know.

How to nominate

What are we looking for?  

We are looking to celebrate and learn from places that are making the most of their inherited assets. Old or new, large or small, known or unknown - we are looking for the places that work well. 

Using the form below, please provide a short descriptive explanation on why you think the place is worthy of an Urbanism Award. What does it mean to you and others, why does it work well, and what can we learn from it?  

You can make as many nominations as you want.
