The search is on to find the UK’s best landscape project with the winner going on to represent the UK in the Landscape Award of the Council of Europe.
The competition is open to nominations for landscape projects which have transformed communities, whether done by local authorities, community groups, organisations or businesses.
Landscape Institute president Jo Watkins said of the awards: "This is a great opportunity to highlight the tremendous contribution that great urban and rural landscape make to the creation of strong communities. I urge everyone involved in landscape projects to consider entering the award."
Scottish Natural Heritage landscape advisor Caroline Read said: "This award is important as it recognises that looking after our landscape for future generations is a responsibility shared by all of us.
"Communities can help to inform choices about landscape change and get involved in projects to celebrate and enhance their local area."
The closing dates for applications is 27 August and the winner will be announced at the European Landscape Convention Conference being held 8-10 November in Liverpool.
