Entry deadline looms for South Downs Design Awards

Planning agents, developers, builders, landowners and community groups are being urged to get their nominations in as the clock counts down to the deadline for the South Downs Design Awards.

After a five-year break, the prestigious awards are back for 2024 with an extended line-up of categories celebrating high standards of urban, architectural and landscape design, as well as promoting creativity and understanding of the National Park through design.

The categories are:


Includes completed extensions, single buildings, small and large housing developments, and visitor accommodation.


Includes completed commercial, industrial, farming, infrastructure, recreation, and leisure developments.


Includes completed historic parks and gardens, historic buildings, monuments, as well as excellent craftsmanship.

Future projects

Includes projects that celebrate distinction in unbuilt projects on paper and the potential for positive contribution to the National Park, its communities and the planet.

Winners will receive a unique trophy, beautifully hand-carved in South Downs oak by acclaimed West Sussex-based sculptor, Alison Crowther. All the shortlisted entries across the four categories will be put forward to a public poll and the project with the most votes will win the People’s Choice Award.

Nominations close on 30 April. The shortlist will be announced in the summer, with a glittering awards ceremony taking place in the autumn.
