2016 Annual Awards Evening
Wednesday 16th November - 7.30pm
St. Peter's by the Waterfront.
The 2016 Annual Awards Evening was presented by Ipswich Society Vice-President Chris Wiltshire.
With a surge of building projects in Ipswich over the past year we had 21 nominations, some of them very promising, with a mix of new builds and restorations, commercial and residential.
Chris took us through an illustrated talk on all the nominations with their good and their bad points. At the end of the talk the Awards were announced and the coveted framed certificates were presented to the teams involved in the projects which have made the most notable contribution to the townscape.
The evening finished with wine and canapes with a chance for Members to socialise.

The 2016 Awards results are in the April 2017 NEWSLETTER and links to the 2016 Awards report and the 2016 Awards photos on our Flickr photo website can be found below.

About The Ipswich Society Annual Awards
In pursuance of the Society's objectives, annual awards in the form of framed certificates are given for the buildings that have made a notable contribution to the townscape, under the headings:

  • new buildings
  • restoration or refurbishment of an existing building

Awards are made in two classes:

1. private;   2. commercial or local authority.

Schemes must have been completed in the preceding two years and be visible from the public highway, including footpaths, and the criteria for judging are:

  • architectural quality
  • work in character with the surroundings or forming a focal point
  • improvement to the original building or its setting
  • scale, detailing, colour and materials sympathetic, well considered and appropriate
  • good quality of workmanship and standard of finish
  • impact: does it set a good standard for others to follow?

The awards are in three categories:

  1. Distinction,
  2. High Commendation
  3. and Commendation.

At the Awards Evening photographs of all the nominations are shown and the work described before the awards are announced and the presentations made.
