Nominations are invited from individuals, architects, builders and local Councils, for buildings to be considered for the Harry Johnson Award.

The prestigious Harry Johnson Award, sponsored jointly by the Campaign to Protect Rural England and the Nottinghamshire Building Preservation Trust, is given every two years to acknowledge best restoration of a building, or the best new building in its locality.

Nominations should be delivered to the Secretary of the Nottinghamshire Building Preservation Trust, The Minster Chambers, Church Street, Southwell, Nottinghamshire NG25 0HD, to arrive not later than 11th May, 2014.

Buildings should have been completed since 1st May 2011. The judges will be looking especially for smaller buildings (new-build or restorations of existing structures) which enhance their environment and show the use of historic materials and methods.  It is helpful to the judges if ‘before’ and ‘after’ photographs can be supplied, together with a brief description of the building and its history. A site visit may be required and entrants will be contacted to make the arrangements.
