The World Habitat Awards is currently closed for entries and will re-open in January 2024!

Look out for the Call for Applications here on our website, on social media and in our newsletter.

Every year between January and March the World habitat Awards receive applications, and then we begin a rigorous evaluation process involving an independent advisory group of housing experts. Between eight and twelve projects that demonstrate exceptional work in providing or promoting access to adequate housing are shortlisted as finalists each year.

Evaluation visits are then made to up to four projects before recommendations are presented to a panel of external judges, including the Executive Director of the United Nations Human Settlements Programme (UN-HABITAT).

Two projects then become Gold winners and the remaining either Silver or Bronze winners.

Take a look at the application questions and begin planning your entry today!
