Judging panel annouced for Cairngorms Design Awards

24th June 2016

There’s only a week to the deadline of the Cairngorms National Park Design Awards and the judging panel has been announced.

They are Andrew Wright OBE, a Moray-based conservation architect; Eleanor Mackintosh, Convenor of the Cairngorms National Park Authority (CNPA) Planning Committee and Neil Sutherland, architect and founder of Inverness-based MAKAR, an architect-led design and build company.

Commenting on the 2016 Design Awards, Eleanor Mackintosh said: “The competition isn’t just open to developers and architects, so if you’re a home owner, community organisation or small business that has a project, big or small, that’s beautiful, innovative or unusual, then the Cairngorms National Park Authority wants to hear from you.”

The Design Awards were first run in 2012 and showcased some truly inspiring entries. With 2016 being Scotland’s Year of Innovation, Architecture and Design, the CNPA decided it was time to bring them back, with the awards aimed at recognising exceptional standards of design and craftsmanship in the Park. Entries to this year’s Design Awards are being accepted until 1 July 2016.
