The judging panel for the 2022 Guernsey Design Awards, which celebrate outstanding design in Guernsey’s built environment, has been announced.
With the deadline for entries fast approaching, the judging panel for the 2022 Guernsey Design Awards has been announced, and as always, it will comprise a broad spectrum of local architectural expertise.
The panel, who are tasked with rewarding entries which best demonstrate meeting the original brief, among other criteria, will this year consist of five members.
- Steve Powell BSc (Hons) ICIOB ACIAT
- Mitchell Sneddon BA (Hons) DipArch RIBA ARIAS
- Simone Whyte, the Principal Forward Planning Officer for the States of Guernsey Planning Service
- Debbie Joyce RIBA
- Heather Bromley CIAT
Commenting on the panel, Steve Powell said: “With RIBA and CIAT, Planning and Construction all being represented, it gives us a great balance of views”.
The awards were developed by the States of Guernsey Planning Service, Norman Piette and The Guernsey Society of Architects, and are supported by CIAT, meaning this year’s panel is not just a solid fit in terms of honouring the roots of the awards, but is collectively more than qualified to pick the winners from the entries that have reached the highest standards both functionally and aesthetically.
Revitalised in 2012 and held every two years, the awards aim to promote distinctive, original, inspirational and sustainable design across a variety of categories, from building and landscaping to interiors and public art. The closing date for entries is 5pm on Friday 26th November.
