About the Minister's Award for Urban Design

The Minister's Award for Urban Design recognises contemporary Queensland urban design projects of the highest quality. It encourages cities, towns and communities across Queensland to strive for best practice in all projects.

The award highlights:

  • the critical role of good urban design in shaping Queensland
  • how collaborative relationships can lead to the successful development of the built environment.

Nominations for the 2025 Minister’s Award for Urban Design, the Malcolm Middleton Award for Liveable Design, and the Movement and Place Award open in March 2025. These typically include entries from the Australian Urban Design Awards or State Awards programs held in the preceding year.
