Through its annual Awards of Excellence, the Atlanta Urban Design Commission honors those projects, programs, individuals and organizations that have significantly contributed towards the enhancement of the City of Atlanta’s built environment, the preservation of our physical heritage, and the sympathetic balance between the old and the new. This year we are celebrating 40 years of the Awards of Excellence and, as such, we are trying something new.
As we seek to better reflect what the communities in the City of Atlanta value, we are launching the 1st annual Community Design Awards. Unlike the Awards of Excellence that are solely decided by the members of the Atlanta Urban Design Commission, the Community Design Awards will be nominated and decided by the residents of Atlanta. Voting on the nominations will take place at the NPU level, online and through paper ballots that can be dropped off at the Atlanta City Studio or in the Office of Design at City Hall. Winners for the Community Design Awards will be announced during the same ceremony as the Awards of Excellence later this year.
Please download the nomination form below. We invite you to submit nominations for the Awards of Excellence and/or the Community Design Awards. If you have any questions or need any assistance, please contact Matt Adams by email or (404) 330-6201.
