The community prize celebrates community-driven design and collaboration, showcasing projects which contribute to a sense of local identity and which are selected from submissions across all categories. Covid-19 has focused attention on building inclusive and sustainable communities and is gaining traction in the UK, said the expert assessors, the prospective winner demonstrating that it both values and brings value to its community. Shortlisted schemes showed how they engaged particularly young people, initiated volunteering regimes, employed unusual and innovative financial models to unlock potential and resonated with locals. This resulted in popular, loved projects with a clear sense of purpose and which, as a consequence, can bring people together and become well-used community assets with a strong sense of ownership.

The full shortlist of the New London Awards are eligible to be considered for the special prizes in addition to their own category prize,
