This is the 15th competition since it was first held, in 1993. The prize, which is awarded every two years, honours exemplary projects and their authors. The subject matter is socially and ecologically oriented settlement and landscape development as well as contemporary open space planning. With the more intensive use of urban and rural areas, ever higher demands are being placed on the efficiency of the environment. Urban growth and the simultaneous transformation of rural regions, climate change and the energy transition, economic challenges and - currently - the consequences of the pandemic are creating pressure to adapt and conflicts. Existing infrastructures are currently being adapted to the changed conditions with great effort, and entire systems are being rebuilt. The development and realisation of these new systems requires a fundamental rethink at all planning levels.

On 23 April 2021, the jury, whose members include Karin Helms, President IFLA Europe, will review the 35 nominated works. Nine jurors will decide on the awarding of the first prize and the awards in the categories Public Space as a Centre, Living Environment / Working Environment, Use of Plants, Landscape and Environmental Planning / Landscape Experience, Sport, Play, Movement, Landscape Architecture in Detail, Young Landscape Architecture, Climate Adaptation and Historic Sites / Garden Monument Preservation. The award honours outstanding, also conceptual planning achievements that demonstrate aesthetically sophisticated, innovative, ecological and participatory solutions for the
aforementioned tasks.

The award will be presented on Friday, 8 October 2021 in Berlin. On this occasion, a comprehensive documentation with all awarded and nominated works of the current competition year will be produced.
