Nominate Great Design in Your Area 
for 2015 Mayor's Design Awards 
Mayor Hancock and Denver's Community Planning and Development Department are seeking nominations for the 2015 Mayor's Design Awards.

The awards, first handed out in 2005, honor projects throughout the city for excellence in architecture, exterior design and place-making. They are presented to Denver homeowners, business owners, nonprofits, artists and others for their creative contributions to the public realm through innovative design.

Many different types of projects are eligible. Previous award winners range from restaurants and galleries to private single-family homes to plazas and other shared public spaces. What they all have in common is the imaginative and innovative way they enhance public spaces and create community.

Looking for "Neighborhood Gems"
This year, in an effort to recognize the special places that help make Denver's neighborhoods unique, the awards will include for the first time the "Neighborhood Gem" category, honoring exterior design and public spaces that locals have recognized for contributing to and elevating their neighborhood's character and charm.

Denver residents and neighborhood groups are encouraged to nominate places and structures that exemplify what they love about their neighborhood and that are recognized by the community as local treasures.

Submitting your nomination
Nominations will be accepted until Tuesday, Sept. 8, 2015, and winners will be announced at an event this fall. To nominate a project, learn more about the Mayor's Design Awards and see past winners, visit DenverGov.org/MDA.
