Nominations are now open for the World Habitat Awards to recognize and highlight innovative, outstanding, and sometimes revolutionary housing ideas, projects, and programmes from across the world.
- As well as international recognition, a prize of £10,000 is made to each of the two Gold Award winning projects.
- Trophies are also presented to the Gold Award winning projects and travel and accommodation costs are met for one representative of each project to attend the awards ceremony.
- The Awards are open to all individuals, organisations or governments who have addressed housing challenges.
- They encourage entries from all over the world from innovative projects that promote access to adequate housing for all.
- Whilst the housing element must be a key part of each submission, entrants are encouraged to submit projects and programmes that view the term ‘habitat’ from a broad perspective. Entries are encouraged that also address wider issues, for example: the climate emergency and environmental sustainability; social inclusion and income generation and gender, among others.
- You can enter more than one project or programme in the same year.
- Entries must detail housing projects and/or programmes that are either completed or in progress. Those that are at design stage only or in the very early stages of development will not be considered.
- In addition, projects that were completed more than 10 years ago will also not be considered.
- Previous entrants can re-submit in subsequent years providing that the project has developed significantly in the intervening time period.
- You can enter projects that were developed and/or implemented by another individual or organisation. However, your entry must include a letter of permission from the original designer/implementer agreeing to its entry and for its publication in the event of it winning an Award.
