What are the projects, people and events that have shaped Australian landscape architecture?

Landscape Architecture Australia is marking the Australian Institute of Landscape Architects 50th anniversary by publishing a special issue of the magazine that celebrates 50 projects, people and events across five categories. The categories are Future Leaders, Esteemed Fellows, Significant Projects pre-2000, Significant Projects post-2000 and Courageous Moments. Fifteen jurors have been appointed to consider the submissions for each of these, and we would like you to contribute your ideas.

To make a nomination for one or more of the categories, please:

  • State the category the submission should be considered for.
  • Include the full name of the project, organisation, individual, client or commission.
  • Include between 2 and 5 images of the person, project or works.
  • Provide a short statement describing the person, project or works and the significance to the profession of landscape architecture in Australia, between 1966–2016.

The jurors are Amalie Wright, Bruce Mackenzie, Jan Owen, Sharon McKay, Mark Jaques, Susan Ryan, Andrew Saniga, Elizabeth Mossop, Dawn Casey, Scott Hawken, Catherin Bull, Janet Holmes à Court, SueAnne Ware, Barbara Schaffer and Jeff Malpas.

Submissions should be presented on one A4 page document in portrait orientation and submitted as a PDF (max 5mb) via email to: landscape@archmedia.com.au. Please note that the images and statement provided do not have to be of publishable quality at this stage. Images may be sourced from the internet as long as they are adequately attributed. All submissions will be put to the juries for their consideration.

Submissions due by 24 May 2016.
