The Urban Design Awards celebrate the best new projects in Edmonton. Through the program, we recognize individuals, organizations, firms and projects that have contributed to urban design and the City's quality of life.

This year's competition has now closed. We've received 58 entries, from bike racks to buildings, and we look forward to showcasing all of them over the next few months. Thank you to all those who were involved in their design and construction. You can view them all on our submissions page.

We've heard from the designers, now, we're calling on you. We need you to tell us which project is deserving of recognition. From now until Friday October 4, 2019 voting for the People's Choice category is open. The project that receives the most votes will be given an award, so get voting!

What's Next?

Between now and October, we will celebrate all the projects that were submitted.

On Friday October 4, 2019 all the submitted projects will be judged by a national panel of experts. They will determine the winning projects over the 8 awards categories. There will also be a public talk that evening hosted by Media Architecture Design Edmonton. Information on that will be released shortly.

In November, the winning projects will be announced at an awards presentation. All the entrants will be in attendance, as well as a limited number of tickets available for the public.
