About the Awards

Since 1982, the Conservancy has honored excellence in the field of historic preservation with our annual Preservation Awards. The awards are selected by an independent jury of experts in architecture, historic preservation, and community development.

Award recipients range widely, from sensitive restoration, rehabilitation, and adaptive reuse projects, to groundbreaking advocacy and education efforts by individuals and groups.

Submissions come from throughout Los Angeles County and illustrate the value and power of historic preservation.

In addition to the project awards, the Conservancy bestows a special Chair's Award for exceptional contributions.

Past recipients of the Chair's Award include the City of Los Angeles Community Redevelopment Agency, architectural historians Esther McCoy and Robert W. Winter, and the Los Angeles Historic Preservation Overlay Zone (HPOZ) Movement.

Construction projects may be commercial, residential, or institutional. Historic landscape projects, as well as contributions to preservation education or program development, are also encouraged.
