Entries now invited for the 2021 Built Environment Awards

Thursday 21 January 2020

Entries are now open for the 2021 Built Environment Awards, comprising the Marrickville Medal for Conservation and the Inner West Urban Photography Competition.

The Marrickville Medal for Conservation has been awarded annually since 1995 and was one of the first of its kind in New South Wales.

It celebrates built conservation works that contribute to the understanding and preservation of the Inner West’s rich cultural and architectural heritage.

The award coincides with the state-wide National Trust Heritage Festival held in April–May every year.

The award is open to all building works, completed in the past three years, having positive conservation outcomes, including:

• Preservation
• Restoration
• Reconstruction
• Adaptation
• Interpretation

Works can be large or small, private or public, but the judges will be looking for thoughtful and innovative outcomes.

The Inner West Urban Photography Competition is open to people of all ages and abilities and encourages people to engage with the Inner West Council urban landscape.

Inner West Urban Photography Competition images must in some way feature, reference or comment on heritage attributes of our built environment within the Inner West Council local government area.

Last year, a former Temperance Hall in Balmain converted into five apartments won the 2020 Marrickville Medal for Conservation.

The winner of the open category of the Urban Photography Awards was Serkan Ogdum for Symmetry In Time.

The Awards will be announced in May. For more information and to enter the Awards, go to www.innerwest.nsw.gov.au/BuiltEnvironmentAwards

Entries close Sunday, 14 March.
