My Place Awards

Have you been involved in a built environment project that has made a difference to your community, or would you like to support the achievements of others that are working to improve your locality? The My Place Awards are for you!

The My Place Awards are the Scottish Civic Trust’s annual celebration of the difference local communities can make to their built and natural environment. Their aim is to bring proper recognition to community-led built environment projects that have transformed a local neighbourhood.

The My Place Awards have two categories:

  1. Community-led Projects: recognises recent community-led built environment projects that have transformed their locality
  2. Community Champions: celebrates individuals in communities across Scotland who have made a significant contribution to their local area through achieving positive change in the built environment, whether through built heritage, public spaces or access to these by communities.

Winners of the My Place Awards benefit from the opportunity to develop a national profile and evidence impact to potential and existing funders, as well as be celebrated at a ceremony attended by national policy makers and major stakeholders in Scotland’s built environment sector.
