OPT Awards 2020

Entries for the OPT Awards 2020 are now closed.

Thank you to all those who have submitted entries, it is a delight to see so many projects that help bring Oxford to life!

The judges are looking forward to reviewing the entries in early autumn, leading up to an Awards Evening in the wintertime.

The panel are appointed as a cross section of local people, all with a wide range of skills and knowledge of Oxford.

This year they will also be presenting a new Green Award to celebrate those projects which demonstrate exemplary work towards sustainability.

Join the conversation online with @OxfordPresTrust and #OPTAwards2020, and please do contact Katie at k.wylie@oxfordpreservation.org.uk for any further information.

Good luck to all entrants!

Each year, the OPT Awards celebrate the contribution that buildings and environmental projects can make to Oxford’s character, its streets, and its green spaces. From exceptional new buildings, to the highest quality conservation of the existing, through to temporary installations.

This year, the Awards were launched at The Oxford Trust’s Science Oxford Centre and Wood Centre for Innovation, Stansfield Park – one of the winners of last year’s prestigious OPT plaques.

Steve Burgess, CEO of The Oxford Trust, said “We were honoured to receive a plaque for our Wood Centre for Innovation and Science Oxford Centre last year and recognise the value of the OPT Awards in celebrating the best building projects and conservation schemes in Oxford”.

The OPT Awards are now in their 43rd year, and we are grateful to sponsors Critchleys Accountants, Mathews Comfort Insurance Brokers and Carter Jonas Surveyors.
