2013 Rudy Bruner Award Winners

APPLY FOR THE AWARD

The Rudy Bruner Award for Urban Excellence is biennial. Applications for the 2015 award are now being accepted. Submissions must be received by midnight on Tuesday, December 9.

 

Eligibility

  • • The project must be a real place, not just a plan or program.

  • • Since site visits are integral to the award process, the project must have been in operation for a sufficient amount of time to demonstrate success.

  • • The project must be located in the continental United States. It is not feasible to conduct site visits at other locations.

  • • There are no distinct categories. Projects may include any type of place that makes a positive contribution to the urban built environment.

  • • Urban environment is broadly defined to include cities, towns, villages, neighborhoods, counties and/or regions.

  • • Previous applicants and Honorable Mention winners may apply up to three times. Previous winners are not eligible.
 

The Application

The application is designed to give each project the opportunity to state its story in its own words and to elicit multiple perspectives of the project. Applicants are encouraged to concentrate their efforts on providing a clear description of the project and thorough answers to questions. Although visual representations of the project – such as drawings, plans, and photographs are important – the selection will be based upon the quality of the project rather than the elaborateness of the presentation. We encourage you to visit the RBA digital archive to view information about past winners including completed applications.
