Shortlist for the 2022 WLA Student Awards

World Landscape Architecture received entries in all categories of the 2022 WLA Student Awards and the jury has completed judging over 125 entries and finalised the shortlisting process. The quality of the student entries was high from universities such as Harvard University GSD, Cornell University, Beijing Forestry, National University of Singapore, University of Cape Town, University of California, Berkeley, Politecnico di Milano and many others.

Judging
The jury reviewed and scored all entries in each category. The Awards shortlist was determined by assessing the scores and the number of entries in each category (thus the shortlist quantity for each shortlist is not the same). Jurors recused (didn’t provide a score) themselves if they had a conflict of interest or the student was from their school/university(as determined by the WLA team). In this instance, an average score of the other jurors’ scores was used in place of the recused juror to calculate the total score.

The final awards will be announced on May 24, 2022.
