Good urban design is interdisciplinary: a fusion of professional expertise and public and political insight and energy. The National Urban Design Awards are therefore open to any UK practice, organisation, local authority or branch of government, UK based students and UDG International Practice and Local Authority members.

The National Urban Design Awards celebrate the best in the design of towns and cities, streets and spaces.
After a short hiatus our relaunch brings new categories that reflect the different types of work undertaken by practitioners in urban design from policies, urban design frameworks and masterplans through to built schemes, with criteria based on real-world design guidance/standards and statutory duties.
- Frameworks + Masterplans
- Policy, Strategy + Design Guidance
- People Friendly Place
- Student Project
- Outstanding Contribution to Urban Design
- Book Award
The Awards are supported by the Francis Tibbalds Trust who generously fund a £600 prize to the winner of the Student Award and a discretionary grant of upto £1,000 to the winner of the People Friendly Place Award.
