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

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