World Habitat Awards 2014: Call for entries from housing projects

The annual World Habitat Awards recognise innovative and sustainable solutions to housing challenges around the world. Entries are now open for the 2014 competition.

Previous winners range from projects delivering environmental sustainability to others focused on the scaling up of innovative practices. Full details of previous winners and finalists are available on our website. 

Darinka Czischke, BSHF’s Director said: "The World Habitat Awards are a great way of identifying and celebrating good practice in housing worldwide. Previous winners have included projects which really demonstrate the wider benefits of good housing, for example health improvements or energy saving.

"For the winners, the benefits include receiving international recognition for their innovative practices and a cash prize of £10,000, as well as a trophy. Winning projects also have the opportunity to transfer their award-winning approach through peer-exchange activities sponsored by BSHF.”

Housing projects which demonstrate practical, innovative and sustainable solutions to current housing needs are invited to submit their entries via the World Habitat Awards website . Entries must be received by 1st November 2013.
