Search on for international talent

The International Federation of Landscape Architects (IFLA) has launched its second competition to recognise outstanding work in the profession.

The second IFLA Sir Geoffrey Jellicoe Gold Medal will pay tribute to a practising landscape architect whose merit, talent and actions are acknowledged at international level. The international jury for the competition includes Landscape Institute president Nigel Thorne.

The first winner in 2005 was Peter Walker, whose work includes the commission for the World Trade Center Memorial in New York.

Nominations for the award can be made by landscape associations or IFLA members before the deadline of 2 May.

The medal winner will be notified by the president of the IFLA and will be presented with the award at the organisation's 46th World Congress in Brazil next year.

Nominations should be sent to IFLA Sir Geoffrey Jellicoe Gold Medal, secretary general, IFLA, c/o MVillage, Rue des Palais, 44, Bte.21-1030, Brussels, Belgium.
