Design Awards 2001
Coventry Design Awards
are held every two years to reward design excellence in the
city. The awards are a locally based initiative which give
the people of Coventry an opportunity to nominate good examples
of design that make a significant contribution to the
environment of the city.
A key aim is to raise the profile
of urban design as a method of creating a high quality
environment whilst recognising that good quality and design can
help make a better, more positive city for everyone to enjoy.

Coventry Evening Telegraph and the distribution of leaflets
