The Urban Development Institute of Australia’s (UDIA) Awards for Excellence are a celebration and promotion of the knowledge, skills and innovation of the Australian urban development industry.
Initiated in 1996 the Awards showcase the urban development industry’s world class developments and invite the public to learn more about the exceptional projects happening across the nation.
The program is rigorous, taking eight months from launch through to the completion of judging. The judges visit every site in person, as well as review accompanying written submissions.
Our judges are experienced industry leaders who bring tremendous credibility to our awards program. Their depth of experience and knowledge ensures the process is both independent and robust.
During October to January, our national judging panel travels the length and breadth of Australia to determine the best of the best State Award Category Winners.
A UDIA Award is a true sign of excellence, quality and industry best practice.
The awards provide an opportunity to recognise and acknowledge the contributions to the industry by all industry professionals including architects, engineers, environmental professionals and consultants.
