Two Awards for Year Two

Launch and Call for Entries 2011

Once again it is time to celebrate the importance of place and place-making throughout the country.  The Scottish Civic Trust My Place Awards is unique in Scotland as it is a national celebration of good local design and conservation as nominated and evaluated by local people, it is not an industry award.  For year two, two Scottish Civic Trust My Place Awards will be presented in March 2011.

In addition to promoting and finding Scotland's most remarkable and well designed places and spaces, this year the Scottish Civic Trust is searching for Scotland's Civic Champion too.   To be eligible for either award, only projects based in and individuals living in Scotland can enter.  And entries must be nominated by civic societies and preservation trusts affiliated to the Scottish Civic Trust.

Nominations for the Scottish Civic Trust My Place Award 2011 must be submitted online at www.myplaceawards.org.uk.  Entries for Scottish Civic Trust Civic Champion 2011 can be made manually using the downloadable entry form on the website.  Nominations for both categories will be published on the Scottish Civic Trust My Place Awards website and a judging panel of industry experts will assess all the entries and decide on winners for 2011.

Launching the awards, John Pelan, Director, Scottish Civic Trust said,

"There is no better time to celebrate Scotland's network of civic societies whose individual commitment and passion for built heritage is demonstrated in small and large projects and in towns and cities throughout the country.  Through the Scottish Civic Trust My Place Awards we are able to put a spotlight on the individuals who and organisations that really make a difference to our communities."
