World Habitat Awards 2019 open for entry


The World Habitat Awards competition has been run by World Habitat in partnership with UN-Habitat since 1985.

Each competition, two winning projects receive:

  • A trophy (presented at a global event) in recognition of their work to develop and deliver good practice in housing. World Habitat meets travel and accommodation costs for a project representative to attend the awards ceremony.
  • A prize of £10,000
  • Bespoke follow-on support from World Habitat through our transfer programme

Who can enter?

  • Any individual, organisation or government who has an innovative and practical solution to housing needs and problems from any country of the world.
  • More than one entry can be made by the same individual or organisation.
  • Entries should relate to housing projects and processes that are either completed or in progress. Those that are at design stage only or in the very early stages of development cannot be considered.
  • Previous entrants can re-submit in subsequent years providing that the project has been further developed in the intervening time period.
