Apply for the World Habitat Awards

Applications are now available for the 2008 World Habitat Awards.

The awards are given annually to projects that provide practical and innovative solutions to current housing needs and problems, one from the global South and one from the North.  Entries need to relate to any form of innovation in housing provision, management, design or funding.  Housing projects can be large or small, and appropriate for any country or context.

Award recipients will receive international recognition for their work, as well as prize money of US$ 20,400 (10,000 British pounds), plus an individually designed silver trophy.

In the first stage of the competition, all that is required is a concise summary of the project.  Only those projects selected for Stage II will be asked to prepare a more detailed submission.

More information, and the online application form, is available at www.worldhabitatawards.org.  Stage I submissions are due by 1 June 2008.
