Activism Award – NEW
For architects and others working in the built environment, the pandemic has ushered in a new era of activism.
This new award seeks to reward a group or individual that is addressing one of the built environment’s pressing challenges – from issues of inequality and diversity to homelessness – and pushing for real change.
Judges would like to know how entrants have made effective use of the internet to grow their network and advance their agenda during lockdown.
This award is free to enter. A £1000 cash prize will be presented to the winning individual or organisation.
