Entries for BCO Awards 2017 are now closed.

The BCO have followed the movement and the trends in the market and brought in a few changes to the 2017 Awards to keep the competition relevant and fresh.

Whilst 'The BCO Guide to Specification' remains a cornerstone of the judging process, its application is now more specific to each project and the judging process will recognise its relevance to that development. This also means that the entry process has become more straightforward and less reliant on technical data.

We have also introduced some size criteria and boundary changes. The Award for Projects up to 2,000 m2 was reduced to 1,500m2 and the South East will no longer be judged alongside the London region, but as part of the South of England. Read our interview with Peter Crowther, who headed the Awards review process.

Our entry guide is available to download and will take you through the new submission process step by step. Please make sure you read the entry guide, to ensure that you give your project the best opportunity to stand out from the crowd.

Projects for the 2017 Awards must have been completed after 1st January 2013 or due to be completed before 1st November 2016. The deadline for entries is Friday 25 November 2016.

Please note: The BCO Awards registration is separate from the BCO website and you will need to go to and set up a new account with separate login details specifically for submitting a BCO Award.

Entries for BCO Awards 2018 open on Wednesday 4 October 2017 and close on Friday 24 November 2017.
