2019 Great Places Awards

Deadline: Monday, February 11, 2019

Thank you for your interest in submitting to the 2019 Great Places Awards. Now in its 21st year, EDRA's Great Places Awards seek to recognize work that combines expertise in design, research, and practice and contributes to the creation of dynamic, humane places that engage our attention and imagination.

Award-winning projects reflect an interdisciplinary approach that is enduring, human-centered, sustainable, and concerned with the experiential relationship between people and their environment (built or natural) over time.


The Great Places Awards have four (4) submission types:

  1. Book Award
  2. Place Design
  3. Place Planning
  4. Place Research

All submissions for the 2019 Great Places Awards must be electronically submitted by 11:59 pm ET Monday, February 11, 2019. No paper or late submissions will be accepted. Your submission will not be considered if the application fee has not been received by the deadline date.
