If there is a new building in our neighbourhood that you like and admire - or even one you hate - now is your chance to put it forward: for an Award - or a Wooden Spoon.
The 2018 Awards will be presented at the Society’s AGM on 5th July, 7.00pm at the Bush Theatre, Uxbridge Road, Shepherd’s Bush. The deadline for submissions is 16 May.
What is this all about?
The Hammersmith Society inaugurated its annual awards scheme in 1989. Its purpose is to recognise improvements in our borough’s townscape, whether this is for a new building, an imaginative renovation or adaptation of an old building, the creation or improvement of a green open space, a well-designed streetscape, or an improved shopfront. They also invite nominations for a Wooden Spoon for "architectural or environmental blots on the landscape".
Who can nominate?
Nominations for 2018 Awards are invited from anyone living or working in Hammersmith, as defined by the old Metropolitan Borough [including Shepherd's Bush - Ed]. Schemes must have been completed within the last two or three years, and must be visible from the public highway or accessible to the public.
Where and when will the awards be presented?
The 2018 Awards will be presented at the Society’s AGM on 5th July, 7.00pm at the Bush Theatre, Uxbridge Road, Shepherd’s Bush
