LI Awards 2021

The LI Awards are all about celebrating people, place and nature, and the myriad ways that landscape projects can connect them.  

The transformative power of landscape is never more important than in times of crisis. Building on the success of the 2020 Landscape Institute Awards, LI Awards 2021 will do more than ever before to celebrate the exceptional contribution of landscape designers, managers, planners, researchers and more across the world.  

  • 15 redesigned Professional category awards, covering all aspects of practice
  •  5 Open category awards, for landscape professionals anywhere to enter
  •  Building with Nature Award
  • Reduced entry fees for most awards, with an additional £30 off for LI members who are sole traders or who work in the public sector.

Enter your work to be recognised for your outstanding achievements in landscape – or get involved by applying to be a judge or by sponsoring an award.
