Judges for the LUDA 2018 awards will be selected from voluntary participants, and will consist of three independent experts of professional and peak body affiliations, the Mayor and Chairperson of the Planning and Development Committee. Reflecting on the collaborative nature of urban design, the judging panel will be a partnership between organisations active in urban design projects both locally and nationally.
