The RTPI Awards for Planning Excellence are the longest running and most high-profile awards in the industry. For 40 years they have rewarded the brightest talent in the profession; the teams, projects and individuals that transform economies, environments and their communities all over the UK and internationally. With planners tackling some of the most pressing issues of our time, from population growth and housing shortage to environmental issues and climate change, it has never been more important to reward the contributions of the profession to society.

Being shortlisted for one of the prestigious awards is an excellent opportunity to raise your profile as an award winning team, consultancy or individual. Best of all it is completely free to enter, you have nothing to lose! The 2017 awards saw a 37% increase in entrants and the judges shortlisted 90 finalists across 13 categories.

Given the success of the 2017 Awards, we have already had a large amount of interest in regards to entering the 2018 awards. We are delighted to announce that we will launch for entries on 18 September 2017 and close 15 December.
