    City of the Year Award


    A new category in 2021, the City of the Year Award seeks to celebrate the UK’s cities and the work they are doing to create liveable, successful places. EG invites submissions for cities from any significant built environment players in those cities, from local authorities and city leadership. Judges will be looking for clear evidence of successful implementation of measures to create liveable and successful cities. Submissions should include examples of how cities have come together with the built environment to create places for a sustainable future. Key examples of solutions that have enabled your city to not just survive but thrive, creating homes to allow all people to live safely and happily, an economy that allows businesses to grow and develop and spaces that allow the planet to thrive, should be included in your submission. Showcasing work that is creating cities that are protected from environmental and societal crises, highlighting strong leadership and key actions that have enabled cities to grow, attract investment and deliver on the need for equality will help judges select EG’s City of the Year. Shortlisted cities will be featured in a special Leading Cities interview in EG.
