The New London Awards recognise the very best in architecture, planning and development in the capital.

New and proposed projects across all sectors of the built environment are eligible and will be judged by an eminent international jury. The jury will be looking for schemes - both built and unbuilt - of the highest design quality that demonstrate a positive impact on their surroundings and make a wider contribution to life in the city.

Winning schemes will be announced on 11 July at NLA's Annual Lunch at The Guildhall and featured in the NLA galleries alongside all shortlisted schemes at The Building Centre and in a special publication. For full details on new and improved categories please see below.
