The Canterbury Society Design Awards aim to recognize and celebrate buildings, spaces and places that are loved by the Canterbury community and will celebrate projects nominated by the people who live alongside them, who use them, and who have a real understanding of their impact on the local area.

The Awards will be placed into five categories : new housing, new buildings, renovated buildings retro-fitted or refurbished public realm and open space projects, and shop front and signage projects. The judges will be considering quality of the design, quality of construction, suitability for the location, improvement to the public realm, impact on the local community, sustainability, pride of place and if the project has a great story to tell.

The winners will be revealed at an award ceremony to take place in January 2019.
