Shortlist announced for The Urbanism Awards 2019

Leith, Edinburgh ph. Arran Bee

We are delighted to present the 50 places selected by our panel for the 2019 Urbanism Awards. The panel of Academicians met on Wednesday 11 April 2018 to decide 10 nominations per category. The categories include The Great Town, Great Neighbourhood, Great Street and Great Place in the UK and Ireland, as well as European City of the Year.

These 50 places will be whittled down to three finalists from each category at the Urbanism Awards Finalists Selection on 24 April. This year we are particularly focusing on places that have been through transformation from a past based predominantly on industries to a new basis for their present and future.

The 15 finalists will be announced at The Academy Spring Debate, following the Finalists Selection on the same day.

The winners will then be announced at our Urbanism Awards Ceremony in November 2018.
