About the Awards Toggle

NLA's annual New London Awards recognise the very best new architecture, planning and development in the capital.

New and proposed projects across 15 sectors of the built environment are eligible for submission - from office buildings to housing; mixed-use to temporary projects; and masterplans to major infrastructure initiatives.
Entries will be assessed by an eminent international jury who will be seeking schemes of the highest design quality, that demonstrate a positive impact on their surroundings and make a wider contribution to life in the city.
Winning schemes will be announced on 7 July at NLA’s Annual Lunch at The Guildhall and will feature in the NLA galleries at The Building Centre alongside all shortlisted schemes, and in a special publication.

Two additional accolades will be drawn from submissions across all categories: the Mayor’s Prize, in association with the Mayor of London, celebrating the project that best creatively contributes to the capital’s economy; and the Ashden Prize recognising the best in efficient energy use.

Special prizes

Mayors Prize
The Mayor’s Prize will be awarded in association with the Mayor of London to the best project that creatively contributes to the capital’s economy. Selected from submissions across all categories, it will consider the projects that make the most innovative and creative contribution to the economic growth of the capital and their wider community; with particular consideration given to their impact in supporting the growth of small businesses through quality, innovative space provision and business support, and their wider regenerative impact in attracting new employment and investment through creating better places.

Ashden Prize 
Awarded in association with worldwide sustainability charity Ashden, this prize will recognise projects deemed most efficient in their use of energy. Selected from submissions across all categories, successful projects will embrace sustainable design – whether through passive design,
renewable generation or reducing embodied energy – and the innovative use of materials, technologies and techniques, creating exemplary schemes for London’s low-carbon future.
