The Sheffield Design Awards were set up by the Sheffield Civic Trust, shortly after establishing in 2006, to recognise quality and high standards in buildings and public spaces in Sheffield and the City Region.

One particular aspect of these awards of which we are proud is the People’s Award, managed with the help of Sheffield Newspapers, in which the public are invited to nominate and choose their favourite buildings or spaces.

They have been awarded in alternate years ever since with the exception of 2020, for the usual reasons.

The judging and Awarding ceremony are held in the Autumn, preceded in the biennial cycle with a formal launch in late Spring and has a publicity event a year ahead of the Awards.
Covid caused the cycle to be interrupted, but we are all hoping that it will be possible to resume this pattern for 2022.
