Conditions of Entry

The general terms and conditions of entry are below. Please read them carefully before submitting your entry and remember to check the relevant award page for specific entry requirements.

If you have any questions, contact the LI.

General entry terms

More than one category

Work may be entered for more than one award category provided the material submitted for each category is separate, relevant to the specific requirements of the award category and is not duplicated in other entries. You will need to register separately for each category entered.

Re-entered submissions

Work which has already received a Landscape Institute Award may not be re-entered in the same category for a period of five years.

Judging process


Adjudication will be undertaken by jurors appointed by the Landscape Institute. For each category of entry a jury will be convened comprising both members and non-members of the Landscape Institute. The LI will assist the jurors where required. Apply to judge the LI Awards


The chair and the juries will select work for the Awards from each of the categories, where appropriate. Should the judging panels feel that none of the work meets the required standard then no award has to be given.


From these award-winning entries the President of the Landscape Institute will select one piece of work for the presentation of the President’s Award for the Best Landscape Scheme of the Year.

All decisions are final

The decisions of the judging panels are final and no correspondence will be entered into before or after the event. The results of the 2023 Landscape Institute Awards will be announced and the presentations made at the Awards Ceremony 2023.
