Nominations for industry Oscars

THE Oscars of the region’s property and construction industry are open for nominations.

Entries are invited for the RICS (Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors) North East Renaissance Awards 2012.

The awards seek to showcase the region’s best projects and highlight the success of property professionals working in the built and natural environments.

There are eight categories — Infrastructure, Regeneration, Community Benefit, Building Conservation, Commercial, Residential, Design and Innovation, and Tourism and Leisure.

There will be another award for Project of the Year, which is presented to the entry judged to have scored the highest across all categories.

The awards are free to enter and open to anyone.

Entries should be submitted by January 20 and a black tie awards dinner will be held in Newcastle in April.
