The World Habitat Awards were established in 1985 by the Building and Social Housing Foundation as part of its contribution to the United Nations International Year of Shelter for the Homeless.
Every year a prize of £10,000 and an award are given to two winners – projects that provide practical and innovative solutions to current housing needs and problems. The awards are presented at a UN-Habitat global event.
Who can enter?

Any individual, organisation or government who has an innovative and practical solution to housing needs and problems from any country of the world.
More than one entry can be made by the same individual or organisation.
Entries should relate to housing projects and processes that are either completed or in progress. Those that are at design stage only or in the very early stages of development cannot be considered.
Previous entrants can re-submit in subsequent years providing that the project has been further developed in the intervening time period.
Prize
As well as international recognition, a prize of £10,000 is made to each of the two winning projects.

Trophies are also presented to the winning projects and travel and accommodation costs are met for one representative of each winning project to attend the awards ceremony.
