The search is on again to find Scotland's best new civic project and civic champion for 2013.

In 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/galleries

 

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:

"The Scottish Civic Trust welcomes nominations for the My Place Awards 2015 from community groups across Scotland.  The Awards, now in their 6th year, go from strength to strength.  We are hoping for a record number of entries and would encourage anyone who cares about their local heritage and community to consider nominating a project."

The 2015 Scottish Civic Trust My Place Awards were launched at the Scottish Civic Trust Annual Conference on Wednesday 29 October 2014 at Maryhill Burgh Halls
