Judged by 5 international professionals and academics it was a real pleasure to be part of this new award which recognises fresh, emerging talent in the world of Landscape Architecture. All the projects reflected and responded to a diverse and interesting range of challenges and issues that face us in Europe. Whilst very different, all the projects were thoughtful, responsive and shared common themes which place value on the importance of responding to the unique needs of local communities in ever changing societies and evolving environments. Congratulations to the winners of each category, but also to all the entrants who submitted highly professional and thoughtful projects. We wish them all every success in their continuing studies and professional experience and look forward to next years entries.
