Guangzhou Award 4th Edition


Reaching its fourth edition in 2018, the biennial Guangzhou Award is putting a special focus on innovative approaches taken by local governments to accomplish the SDGs and meet the commitments of the New Urban Agenda towards the prosperity and quality of life of their citizens.

The 4th Guangzhou Award is receiving applications and is encouraging entries from those cities that are improving infrastructure and public services, and putting into place participatory planning and good governance, partnerships, technology, resilience, social inclusion and gender equality.

5 winning cities will receive a USD 20,000 cash prize, a trophy and a commemorative certificate designed for the award. The winners of the Guangzhou Award are also invited to attend special events including the Guangzhou International Conference on Urban Innovation, an exhibition and the award ceremony. Besides the five awards, the Organising Committee of the Guangzhou Award also intends to recognise one of the short-listed initiatives for its popularity with the public.


The final assessment by the Jury, the Award Ceremony, and Guangzhou International Urban Innovation Conference will take place on 6-8 December, 2018
