Scottish Civic Trust My Place Awards 2011
New category of “Civic Champion” announced
Promoting the importance of place and place-making, the Scottish Civic Trust My Place Awards is looking for Scotland’s best places and its “Civic Champions”.
The My Place Award 2011 will be presented to the project that successfully contributes to making local places better. In addition The Scottish Civic Trust My Place Awards “Civic Champion” will be presented to an individual, nominated by their local civic society, who has made a significant contribution to improving and promoting their local community and built heritage. The new category gives the Scottish Civic Trust the opportunity to celebrate the work of individuals who actively care for and believe in the importance of their communities.
Chairing the judging panel is Roland Kennedy, trustee of the Scottish Civic Trust. He is joined by fellow trustees Alistair Scott, director of architects Smith Scott Mullan Associates and Angus Kerr, architect;& Isobel Leckie, West Crosscauseway Association and Fiona Sinclair, president of Glasgow Institute of Architects.
John Pelan, Director of the Trust said:
“The Scottish Civic Trust Awards are unique in Scotland in that they are nominated by local people from civic societies and groups around the country dedicated to the protection and improvement of their cities, towns and villages. Our new category of “Civic Champion” recognises the important and often overlooked work of individuals who work tirelessly for the betterment of our built environment.”
Supporting the Scottish Civic Trust My Place Awards initiative, Culture Minister Fiona Hyslop said:
“The My Place Awards have a special value, focusing on projects nominated by local communities. The addition of the new Civic Champion category builds further on the community focus of the Awards and emphasises the important contribution of those who act selflessly to make our built environment a better place for all.”
The winner of the first Scottish Civic Trust My Place Awards in 2010 was the beautiful and imaginative restoration of the historic ‘B’ listed Castlemilk House Stables Block in Glasgow, originally designed in 1790.
