National Awards


PIA’s Awards for Planning Excellence showcase leading practice and achievement in planning and the planning profession across a range of planning disciplines and sectors. Leadership in planning, particularly in the face of adversity, is acknowledged and applauded. In all, the Awards are a chance to celebrate, recognise and reward outstanding planning and planners.

The Awards begin by seeking out and recognising the best of planning in each state and territory and celebrating them at local awards ceremonies. The winners of eligible categories are then elevated for consideration by PIA’s national jury, culminating in the National Awards for Planning Excellence ceremony acknowledging the very best of planning and planners that Australia has to offer. See the list of this year’s outstanding nominees on the PIA website.
