My Place Awards launched for 2018

Deadline for nominations is 31 January 2018!

As the countdown to Christmas begins, so too does the search for 2018's best new building, public realm or designed landscape or heritage restoration project in Scotland.

In 2018 the Scottish Civic Trust My Place Awards will recognise projects that have had a positive impact in a local neighbourhood and have delivered positive benefits to that community.

The Scottish Civic Trust My Place Awards are unique in Scotland in that they are:

  • A national celebration of good local design and conservation projects
  • Nominated and evaluated by local people. They are not 'industry' awards.
  • Are supported by the Scottish Government, for the benefit of the communities and places of Scotland.

For the first time we are welcoming nominations from architects, landscape architects, other designers and organisations such as local authorities, building preservation trusts, housing association etc. as long as they can demonstrate support from the local community for the project and evidence of positive differences made such as community benefit and placemaking. Civic societies, community councils, development trusts and other community-based voluntary groups or heritage societies are of course warmly encouraged to keep their nominations coming in.

Examples of previous entries and winners can be viewed at www.myplaceawards.org.uk/galleries

Entries will be published online and the winning and commended entries will be presented at a special ceremony at The Lighthouse in March 2018.

2015 a Scottish Civic Trust My Place Award will recognise a building, landscape or public realm project that has had a positive impact in a local neighbourhood and has delivered tangible benefits to that community.  Also, a Scottish Civic Trust My Place Civic Champion Award will be presented to a person who has made an outstanding contribution to the promotion and protection of their local heritage. Any community based group can nominate a project or person. These can include:  local civic trusts affiliated to the Scottish Civic Trust, community councils, history societies, arts groups, development trusts and community action groups.  Entries must be recently completed projects. These can be new build, restoration, conservation, redevelopment, landscape or public realm projects.   Examples of previous entries and winners can be viewed at www.myplaceawards.org.uk
Entries for both categories will be published online and the winning and commended entries will be presented at a special ceremony at The Lighthouse in March 2015
Launching the 2015 awards at the Scottish Civic Trust annual conference on 29 October, Alistair Scott, Scottish Civic Trust Chairman said:
