IFLA ASIA-PAC LA & Luminary Awards 2017

Dear IFLA friends and delegates,
IFLA Asia-Pacific region is pleased to announce the launch of IFLA Asia-Pac LA Awards & LA Luminary Award 2017.

Objectives
IFLA Asia-Pacific region Landscape Architecture Awards, now known as IFLA ASIA-PAC LA Awards provide an international platform to showcase and promote the achievements and work of landscape architects in Asia-Pacific region. The prestigious awards aim to create continuous awareness and recognition of landscape architecture together with like-minded partners and other professions that have played a key role in shaping our cities and environment towards a better future.

In addition, IFLA Asia-Pacific region is introducing the IFLA Asia-Pac LA Luminary Award 2017. It is IFLA Asia-Pacific’s inaugural and highest honour accorded to its regional luminaries who have inspired and made significant contribution in protecting, championing, advocating, enhancing and/or sustaining the living environment and communities in their profession, region, countries or cities. This award is held in conjunction with the IFLA Asia-Pac LA Awards.

Purpose of the award is two-fold.
– To recognise key leaders and keen contributors in their respective field within Asia Pacific region who have played an important role in help shaping liveable cities; strengthen communities and sustain environments with aligned objectives of IFLA
– To promote greater awareness for the practice of landscape architecture in its diversity and its relationship with multidisciplinary field, through its partners, national associations and the region.

Added values for IFLA members and National Associations
– LA Luminary Award provides leverage for IFLA National Associations to recognise non-landscape architects, contributors and like-minded partners outside of our profession to foster greater partnership.
– IFLA APR will provide maximum exposure for IFLA members and awards winning projects across Asia-Pacific via different media channels and platforms.
– The awards ceremony will be held at the IFLA APR Congress in Bangkok from 2-5 Nov 2017.
