FRENCH NATIONAL LANDSCAPE AWARD 2015
Grand Prix National du Paysage

In September 2014, Ségolène Royal, the French Minister for Ecology, Sustainable Development and Energy, launched a national action plan for the revival of landscapes and nature in towns and cities. One of the 10 measures on which this plan is based consists of relaunching the French National Landscape Award (Grand Prix National du Paysage). The purpose of the French National Landscape Award is to promote the value of landscape initiatives and philosophies in regional transformation processes.

French National Landscape Award 2015

The National Landscape Award is presented by the French Ministry for Ecology, Sustainable Development and Energy which implements the government’s landscape policy.

The Ministry aims to use the National Landscape Award as a way to acknowledge the value of an innovative landscape initiative at the regional level, which must have given rise to concrete actions carried out in France or in cross-border areas. The award-winning initiative must be the fruit of close collaboration between a contracting authority embodying an ambitious regional aspiration and an inventive and creative project management team in which the landscape architect plays a fundamental and prominent role.

The National Landscape Award is open to joint applications from:

public contracting authorities (departments of regional authorities or consortia thereof, government agencies and their public or parapublic institutions situated in metropolitanFrance or in French overseas territories), or from private contracting authorities (private developers, contractors, associations and unions)

and public or private project managers, regardless of their nationality, and in which the landscape architect plays a fundamental and prominent role.

NATIONAL AWARD OPEN TO INTERNATIONAL APPLICANTS 

The National Landscape Award is presented by the Minister for Ecology, Sustainable Development and Energy basedon the recommendations of a judging panel. To guarantee the excellence and diversity of participants, the National Award is open to French, European and international project managers and contracting authorities.
