Wandsworth Council has launched the 2018 Wandsworth Design Awards to find the borough’s best-designed buildings.
The Awards, now in their 19th year, reward high-quality design. Anyone can nominate schemes for consideration, projects must have been completed between 1 January 2015 and 30 September 2017.
The winners will be selected by a panel of judges comprising councillors, including the borough’s design and heritage champions, local architects, representatives of the Wandsworth Design Review Panel, local amenity societies and the Wandsworth Access Association. The awards will be presented in 2018.
