Call for community groups to nominate favourite new buildings, conservation projects and people in annual Scottish Civic Trust My Place Awards

11 November 2016

The Scottish Civic Trust is calling for nominations from local civic trusts, amenity societies, community councils and other heritage or community groups around Scotland for new buildings, restoration projects, landscape designs and other placemaking projects for the annual My Place Awards. The trust is also looking for nominations for a winner of the My Place Civic Champion award.

The 2017 Awards, supported by the Scottish Government, are a national celebration of good local design and conservation projects and of people who make a significant contribution to the civic movement.  The awards are unique in that they are nominated by local communities and people.

Examples of past entries and winners as well as full details on how to make a free nomination can be found at www.myplaceawards.org.uk
