Entries are now being sought for CAMRA’s Pub Design Awards and anyone can submit a pub into the competition as long as it has a stunning design to showcase.
The Pub Design Awards showcase the best architectural projects completed between 1 January 2018 and 30 June 2019.
This year’s categories include and award given for work which conserves and enhances what is good in a historic pub.
A refurbishment award given for a successful makeover of a pub. Judges are looking for work which reflects the building’s individual qualities, rather than something that looks like lots of others.
A conversion to pub use award given for a project which sees a building designed for some other use converted to a pub. The judges are looking for imagination and flair in the conversion.
A new build award to be presented to a completely new pub. Judges are looking for individuality rather than off the peg design.
And the Joe Goodwin Award, named after a former Camra national chairman, who was a champion of the ordinary street-corner local. The judges are looking for projects which give a new lease of life to the building, however it is done.
Andrew Davison, chair of the Pub Design Awards, said: “From pubs converted out of old butcher’s shops to micropubs springing up in disused storage cupboards at railway stations, they truly are pubs with a story to tell.
“Anyone can submit a pub for consideration, whether you are the owner, architectect or a local visitor.”
Applications close on 30 September 2019 and can be submitted by visiting https://www.camra.org.uk/pubs/awards/pub-design-awards/
