What is the entry criteria?
There are a few rules – The project must have been completed between 1 January 2019 and 1 August 2021. The total budget for the project must not exceed the category limit (£30,000 excluding vat for all but two categories – Planting Design and Special Feature). We also need the completed forms to be sent to us by 27 August.
In terms of the criteria for judging, we look at your understanding of the client’s brief, how you overcame challenges this project provided, the hard and soft elements of the project, feedback from your client and any prominent features/materials used in the project.
Will the judges come out to view the project?
No, this is a paper-based awards. Both us as the awards hosts and the judges will take everything you say as truth, and we will work on the trust that everything is accurate.
When will the shortlist be announced?
The shortlist will be announced in the October issue of Pro Landscaper, which will be with readers on the last Friday of September.

Can I enter more than one project?
Yes, the more the merrier.
Will I get feedback from the judges?
