The IULA is organised by Eurohypo AG and intended to recognise public and private commitment to the improvement of the urban environment and continuing development of the city. 

This year, the Award is split into two categories. The first will honour groundbreaking, newly built or redeveloped urban architecture such as housing estates, offices and urban districts, while the second will recognise an initiative, concept or design on sustainable urban development. 

The winning projects will be rewarded from a €50,000 prize fund.

They should make a significant design contribution to the development of cities and enhance the urban environment, with particular focus on user-friendliness and flexibility of use. Adaptability to demographic change is a further requirement. 

Open spaces should be designed to a high standard and be sustainable, particularly regarding stormwater management and the efficient use of materials. 

A panel of British and German experts will judge the entries and the closing date is 16 October.
