Awards for Excellence

The Institute’s Awards for Excellence is one of South Australia’s most respected and highly regarded Awards programs created by the development industry.

Launched in 1994, the Awards were created by the development industry as a vehicle to recognise excellence and innovation within our State.

Receiving an Award from the Urban Development Institute of Australia (SA) is valued recognition for our members work and projects, as well as an honour to the places that are created which shape our State.

The program is unapologetically rigorous, taking four months from launch through to the completion of judging. We take the role of receiving entries very seriously. Since the inception of the Awards, our judges have visited every site in person as well as reviewed the accompanying written submission. This rigorous process recognises the efforts of entrants as well as ensures a thorough assessment of the field.

The UDIA SA Awards for Excellence commands extensive publicity and exposure throughout the entire journey for both entrants and our sponsors culminating in a gala awards event which attracts 350 + guests.

The award entries can only be submitted by UDIA SA members who have the opportunity for their winning entries to be submitted into the UDIA National Awards with winners announced at the annual Awards gala.
