About the Awards

Since 1982, the Los Angeles Conservancy has honored excellence in historic preservation through its annual Preservation Awards. An independent jury of experts in architecture, historic preservation, and community development selects the awards.

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

In addition to the project awards, the Conservancy bestows a special Chair’s Award for exceptional contributions. Outstanding landscape projects may be considered for the Coservancy’s Royce Neuschatz Award for Historic Landscapes.

The application deadline for the 2024 Preservation Awards will be announced fall of 2023.
