OPT Awards 2019

The Oxford Preservation Trust Awards 2019 will soon be open for entries.  In their 42nd year, the OPT Awards continue to go from strength to strength and we were delighted to receive a record number of entries last year.

The OPT Awards celebrate the very best work that is happening across the city and you can see the winners from 2018 below.

So, if you have been impressed by a new building, conservation work or general improvements in your area? – then why not enter the project into this year’s OPT Award’s 2019.  We are on the lookout for projects large and small, in the city, or the Green Belt, which contribute positively to Oxford and its green setting. 

Anyone can nominate, whether it is a conservation project or environmental enhancement. If you have seen something that has impressed you please contact Jane at j.hornsby@oxfordpreservation.org.uk 

All projects are visited by a panel of judges made up of local people and experts from across the City and our two Universities, culminating in a great evening celebrating all that makes Oxford special.

Congratulations to all those recognised in the OPT Awards 2018.  The competition was strong with a record 44 entries all making their contribution to Oxford and its green setting.

The Awards Panel thank everyone who took part and enjoyed visiting all the entries.
