On 29th April the LI Awards 2021 entries has opened for submission, welcoming everyone from the sector to submit their projects. The Landscape Institute is delighted to share some recent updates.

This year the Landscape and Parks Management Award has become an Open Category, welcoming any individual, organisation, employer, government, university or combination of groups to enter. It celebrates excellence in the management of existing landscapes, including parks. Green Flag Award has also joined the LI Awards for the first time, sponsoring the Landscape and Parks Management Category, in line with their 25th year anniversary.

All Awards Open Categories and Professional Categories this year introduced a discount for sole traders, those that work in public sector or 3rd sector (such as voluntary groups, charities and NGOs).

Building With Nature National Award has widened its entries, welcoming residential, commercial and community infrastructure schemes which have secured Building with Nature Accreditation, including Design Award and Full Award winners. Entrants can showcase how they have secured high-quality green infrastructure features at every stage of development: from planning, design, and implementation, through to management, maintenance, and monitoring.

The Awards 2021 entries will close on 8th July, the finalists will be announced in September and the winners will be announced at the Awards Ceremony in November (hosted by James Wong, TV presenter), celebrating the brightest and the best from the sector.

The Awards Ceremony, registrations will open soon! Keep an eye out for more updates.
