Rudy Bruner Award for Urban ExcellenceDeadline: December 12, 2018
The Rudy Bruner Award for Urban Excellence is a national urban design award that seeks to promote innovative thinking about the built environment and advance conversation about making cities better. The award discovers and celebrates urban places that are distinguished by quality design along with their social and economic contributions to the nation’s cities.
Amount: One gold medal of $50,000 and four silver medals of $10,000 are awarded each biennial.
Eligibility: To be eligible, the project must be realized and in the contiguous 48 states. Guidelines are specific to the project (rather than applicant type), as follows:
- The project must be a real place, not just a plan or program.
Since site visits are integral to the award process, the project must have been in operation for a sufficient amount of time to demonstrate success.
- The project must be located in the contiguous United States. It is not feasible to conduct site visits in Alaska or Hawaii.
- There are no distinct categories. Projects may include any type of place that makes a positive contribution to the urban built environment.
- Urban environment is broadly defined to include cities, towns, villages, neighborhoods, counties and/or regions.
- Previous applicants and Honorable Mention winners may apply up to three times. Previous winners are not eligible.
