Scottish Civic Trust – My Place Awards 2024


I am emailing from the Scottish Civic Trust to raise awareness of our national My Place Awards, which celebrate projects and people that work to improve places and communities in Scotland.

Could you please circulate the below to community councils in your area?

What are the My Place Awards?

The Scottish Civic Trust My Place Awards celebrate projects and people that work to improve places and communities in Scotland. They have two categories:

  1. Community-led Projects: recognises recent community-led built environment projects, including new buildings, historic buildings or monuments that have been reused or refurbished, designed public realm schemes such as street-works or parks, and designed landscapes such as gardens or public green spaces.
  2. Community Champions: celebrates individuals in communities across Scotland who have made a significant contribution to their local area through achieving positive change in the built environment, whether through built heritage, public spaces or access to these by communities.

Winners of the Awards are celebrated at a ceremony attended by major stakeholders in the built environment and heritage sectors, as well as representatives from local and national government.

The My Place Awards are a great opportunity to showcase a project’s success to the community, stakeholders and funders by receiving much-deserved exposure and media attention, as well as thank community members for their hard work and dedication to their local place.

How to enter?

Entries to the My Place Awards 2024 can be made via the My Place Scotland website. The deadline for entries is 14 January 2024.
