Building Beauty Awards are now calling for entries in Yorkshire, for its new award scheme.

The awards were launched by the Royal Fine Art Commission Trust to promote beauty in UK buildings and streets, as part of its charitable mission to promote design excellence in the built environment. They’ll celebrate buildings, engineering structures and urban landscaping schemes that add beauty to our environment.

Everyone from architects to members of the public are welcome to submit an entry at buildingbeautyawards.com, with the deadline for entries end of March 2022. The awards are being sponsored by the leading property developer Ballymore Group, and the winners will then be announced at a ceremony in early summer 2022.

“Aesthetically beautiful buildings”

The judging panel will be led by one of Britain’s foremost design critics, Stephen Bayley. Bailey is known as the founder of The Design Museum in London. He’ll be joined by the architectural commentator Paul Finch OBE. Clive Aslet and Kassia St Clair are also on the panel, with other judges to be announced.

The architect of the overall winning building will be awarded a £10,000 prize. And it’ll also be invited to help select the recipients of the new Building Beauty Grants, which are aimed at promoting small beautification projects. Grants can be applied for at www.buildingbeautyawards.com.

The Building Beauty Awards are different from other architectural awards. It’s solely looking to promote aesthetically beautiful buildings, and isn’t lobbying for any other cause. The founders want to start a national conversation about beautiful new buildings and why they matter.

So now is the time to promote beauty in Yorkshire’s built environment.
