The Awards are open to all individuals, organisations or governments who have addressed housing challenges.
We encourage entries from all over the world as the World Habitat Awards are given to projects from the global North as well as the South that provide practical and innovative housing solutions.
Whilst the housing element must be a key part of each submission, entrants are encouraged to submit projects and programmes that view the term ‘habitat’ from a broad perspective. Entries are encouraged that also address wider issues, for example: the climate emergency and environmental sustainability; social inclusion and income generation.
You can enter more than one project or programme in the same year.
Entries must detail housing projects and/or programmes that are either completed or in progress. Those that are at design stage only or in the very early stages of development will not be considered.
In addition, projects that were completed more than 10 years ago will also not be considered.
Previous entrants can re-submit in subsequent years providing that the project has developed significantly in the intervening time period.
You can enter projects that were developed and/or implemented by another individual or organisation. However, your entry must include a letter of permission from the original designer/implementer agreeing to its entry and for its publication in the event of it winning an Award.
Images, plans and/or supporting documents can be submitted via the online application form or by email to [email protected]. If you email documents separately, please include your name, organisation and the name of your project.
Entries may be submitted in English, Spanish or French.
If you have any specific questions, please contact us at: [email protected]
All the best with your entry – we look forward to finding out more about your work.
