Applications are now open for the 2024 World Habitat Awards. The World Habitat Awards recognise and highlight innovative, outstanding and sometimes revolutionary housing ideas, projects and programmes from across the world. More than 360 outstanding World Habitat Awards projects have been recognised over the years, demonstrating substantial, lasting improvements in living conditions.

The World Habitat Awards competition has been run by World Habitat in partnership with UN-Habitat since 1985. In that time some of the world’s most remarkable and innovative housing projects have received international recognition for their work. This year we will be presenting Bronze, Silver and Gold Awards to the most outstanding projects and programmes.


Anyone representing or collaborating on an innovative project in the field of housing is welcome to enter: individuals, NGOs, public institutions, private initiatives, academia, United Nations programmes, etc.

To be eligible, applications:

  • must be related to housing.
  • must concern projects that are either in progress or finished less than ten years ago, from the date the call for entries closes (3 March 2024).
  • cannot be a grant application.

The two GOLD Award-winning projects receive:

  • a trophy in recognition of their work to develop and deliver good practice in housing;
  • prize money of £10,000;
  • follow-up support from World Habitat through our exChange programme; and
  • entry to the World Habitat Awards Network, along with the Silver and Bronze winners.
