South East Awards Judges

RTPI Awards for Planning Excellence are judged by an appointed panel of RTPI members, selected for their experience and expertise. The judges evaluate all entries against the category criteria, selecting which should be shortlisted for further assessment before making conclusions on which project, plans, teams and people have demonstrated planning excellence and are to receive a prestigious award.

Judging panels in the Nations, Regions and National Awards are reviewed and appointed annually usually 2-3 months before the start of each Awards year.
