The Scottish Civic Trust ‘My place’ awards 2020: nominations and submissions open

(adapted from an email from the Scottish Civic Trust)

The My Place Awards celebrate community-led built environment projects that have transformed their locality. The Awards honour projects that have excelled in terms of design and community involvement/impact.

Winners of the My Place Awards are honoured at a reception at Glasgow’s The Lighthouse and have a short film commissioned about their project. Winners and finalists are also featured in an exhibition at The Lighthouse. The My Place Awards are a great opportunity to showcase a project’s success to the community, stakeholders and funders by receiving much-deserved exposure and media attention. The short film about Bellsbank, the 2019 My Place Award winner, reached over 16,600 people on Facebook and the My Place exhibition at The Lighthouse hosted over 12,300 visitors and built environment stakeholders!

Community councils may have suitable projects themselves, or know of others in their area – please circulate this email.
