A recommendation for the President’s Award is made by the judges to the President from the winners of the project categories in the National Awards program.

The recommended project should demonstrate outstanding achievement and the highest standards of practice in at least one important aspect of urban development.

A project honoured with the President’s Award will be one that is capable of making a highly positive contribution to the public standing of contemporary development in Australia.

This award will be bestowed on “the best of the best”.

The Judges reserve the right to not award this category, should the projects not meet these criteria.
