The Building and Social Housing Foundation is now accepting entries for the 2013 edition of the World Habitat Awards. Established in 1985, the World Habitat Awards recognise innovative and sustainable solutions to key housing challenges in the global South as well as the North. Entries are assessed by a panel of international judges and an award of £10,000 is presented to each of the two winning projects at the annual United Nations global celebration of World Habitat Day.
Who can enter?
The competition is open to any individual, organisation or government agency that has an innovative and sustainable housing solution in any country of the world. More than one entry can be made by the same individual or organisation.
How to enter
Initial submissions to the Awards need only comprise a concise description of the key aspects of the initiative, accompanied by images, and may be submitted in English, Spanish or French. Further details and an online entry form are available at worldhabitatawards.org.
All entries must be received by 1st November 2012
