The City of Edmonton and the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada (RAIC) believe it is important to promote public and private awareness of the role of urban design. Every two years, since 2005, the City and the RAIC have co-hosted the Edmonton Urban Design Awards to recognize individuals, organizations, firms and projects that have contributed to urban design and the quality of life in Edmonton. Entries are now being accepted for the 2013 Edmonton Urban Design Awards, which are presented for high-quality urban design projects within the city of Edmonton.
Designers, developers, sponsors, and owners of projects selected as award winners will receive an Award of Excellence or a Certificate of Merit in one of seven categories: Unimplemented Urban Design Plans, Implemented Urban Design Plans, Urban Architecture, Civic Design Projects, Urban Fragments, Community-Based Projects and Student Projects.
The Edmonton Urban Design Awards will be presented at a ceremony in Edmonton’s City Hall on November 22, 2013, and the projects receiving an award will be eligible for the National RAIC Urban Design Awards to be adjudicated in 2014. Furthermore, the awarded projects will be exhibited in City Hall and featured on the City of Edmonton website.
An Award of Excellence or a Certificate of Merit will be given at the sole discretion of the jury. Decisions formed by the jury are final and may not be appealed. There is no limit to the number of awards that may be given, and there is no guarantee that any Award of Excellence will be given. The jury, in conjunction with the Edmonton Urban Design Awards Advisory Committee, reserves the right to combine categories of work where the volume of submissions warrants. The jury reserves the right not to award a certificate in any category.
An entry of $100, including GST, must accompany each submission. Please make cheque or money order payable to the “City of Edmonton.” Credit cards are not accepted.
Entry forms, fees, boards, and binders must be completed and received before 4:00pm on Thursday, September 19, 2013.
