The short-listing for the 2010 Project Awards was one of the toughest ever with a record breaking number of entries demonstrating the incredibly high standard of today’s environmental projects.

The shortlist can be viewed by clicking here or scrolling down this story to the relevant section.

Congratulations to everyone who has been successful in the short-listing process you’ll shortly be contacted and asked to fill out a more detailed form which will be the basis for our judges to decide the winning entries.

In the form you’ll be advised of what the judges will be looking for and have the opportunity to expand on the 600 word maximum limit from the case study which has got you onto the shortlist.

This truly was a bumper year for award entries and the people behind every project to be shortlisted should be justifiably proud of their achievement.

And commiserations to everyone who missed out this year it was an incredibly tough competition and not getting shortlisted should not be seen as a failure of the project, more a sign of the growing strength of the environmental market.
