Scottish Civic Trust My Place Awards 2016

The Scottish Civic Trust is now accepting nominations for buildings, places, spaces and people for the My Place Awards 2016.

The My Place Awards recognise projects that have had a positive impact on a local neighbourhood and have delivered positive benefits to that community. Community based groups including civic societies, amenity groups, history and heritage societies, preservation trusts, community councils, development trusts, and other local voluntary groups can be nominated for Awards.

The Civic Champion Award will also be presented to a person who has made an outstanding contribution to their local heritage and/or civic society.

The Scottish Civic Trust My Place Awards are unique in Scotland in that they are nominated by local communities. They are not ‘industry’ awards and are supported by the Scottish Government.

Last year's winning project was North Edinburgh Grows, a community garden design for North Edinburgh Arts.
