Winning a World Habitat Award provides international visibility and acts as a mark of recognition that a housing solution is innovative, exceptional and exciting.
In addition, the two Gold Award winning projects receive a prize fund of £10,000 each.
Trophies are also presented to the two Gold Award winning projects at a special Awards Ceremony, and travel and accommodation costs are met for one representative of each project to attend.
All award winners (Bronze, Silver and Gold) are invited to join the World Habitat Award Network, consisting of a group of former winners and finalists of the competition since 1986. Every year, the new winners join the Network and every year it grows from strength to strength. We organise online and in person meetings for Network members to learn about each other’s practice in the field of housing. Members can share information with the Network through a dedicated LinkedIn group and reach out to other members to explore synergies and collaborations.
Gold Award winners also receive individualised support from World Habitat for a year, through our exChange Programme, to help develop their projects and programmes and promote their impact to wider audiences.
Organised in partnership with UN-Habitat
