Nat'l Design: @RudyBrunerAward for Urban Excellence seeks entries for U.S. transformative placemaking. Submit today!
In the world of U.S. design competitions, the RBA is unique. We ask our applicants to submit detailed written analyses of their projects—from multiple perspectives—along with descriptive images. Entries must have been in operation long enough to demonstrate their impact on their communities. Our selection process includes site visits to our finalists’ projects to help us fully understand how their places work. The RBA selection committee meets twice: first to select five finalists and again to select the Gold Medal winner. The Gold Medalist will receive $50,000, and each Silver Medalist will receive $10,000; all funds benefit the winning projects. Afterwards, we publish detailed case studies of the winning projects as a resource for educators, students and practitioners. Collectively, these case studies offer insight into 25 years of innovative urban strategies.
