Initiated in 1995, with the first award made in 1996, the purpose of the prize is to celebrate the work of the scholars and professionals in the planning field publishing in European planning journals. It also serves to bring to the attention of planning academics and other interested parties across Europe the range of academic work being undertaken in the spatial planning field and to exchange literature between our different national academic culture. Annually, the Editorial Boards of more than 50 European planning journals are invited to nominate the best published papers of their journal for the prize.
