New London Awards 2018

Submissions for the New London Awards 2018 will open 1 February – 29 March

The New London Awards recognise the very best projects across 15 sectors of the built environment that contribute to make London a better place to live, work, move around and socialise. Judged by a prestigious International Jury advised by London-based expert assessors, these are the only London-wide awards for built and unbuilt projects.

Winning schemes will be announced on 4 July at NLA’s Annual Lunch at The Guildhall, attended by over 700 leading professionals and London policy makers. They will also be featured in the NLA galleries alongside all shortlisted schemes at The Building Centre and in a special publication. 

Submission Guidelines will be available to download from this page from 01 February 2018

Judging Criteria Toggle

Across the 15 categories, the jury will be looking for projects that demonstrate:

• a wider contribution to placemaking, improving the social, cultural and economic character of the local area;

• advancing knowledge and skills around the design, delivery, construction and funding of projects for the capital;
