The Final Vote has now opened for the 2016 Urbanism Awards which will see our shortlist of three cities, towns, neighbourhoods, streets and places reduced to one winner in each category.
Voting follows a busy summer period during which teams of assessors from the Academy visited each finalist to meet representatives from the local authority, local businesses, citizens and community leaders. Their brief was to find out how each place is responding to its economic, physical and social challenges. Voting packs have been prepared for Academicians, which include for each place a number of images, a written summary, scoring and between 3 and 5 learning moments (key ideas, interventions or principles identified by our assessors).
The results of the voting will be announced at The Awards Ceremony on the afternoon of 6 November 2015 at the prestigious Grand Connaught Rooms in London.
In addition to the Ceremony, our three European City of the Year finalists – Bologna, San Sebastián and Stockholm – will take part in an international seminar on the evening of 5 November 2015.
This year’s finalists are as follows:
The European City of the Year
The Great Town Award
The Great Neighbourhood Award
The Great Street Award
The Great Place Award
