6th Awards Cycle: 2020-2021

When will the results of the competition be announced?

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the schedule for announcing regional Awards winners has changed. The winners of both the regional phase and global phase of the Awards competition will now be announced and celebrated in 2021. The schedule and format for the Awards announcements will be published as soon as possible, taking the pandemic situation and the wellbeing of everyone involved at top of mind.

Regional Awards juries conducted virtually

The Awards juries in five regions of the world (Europe, North America, Latin America, Middle East & Africa, and Asia Pacific) met virtually to nominate the competition winners using the “target issues” for sustainable construction. For more information see: 100 hours online to evaluate 2,000 entries.

The Project Contact of all nominated prize winners have been informed and the verification process successfully completed. The results of the regional phase of the competition will not be disclosed until the prizes are handed over in 2021. 

Global Awards finalists preparing submissions

Winners of regional Main Category prizes (Gold, Silver, Bronze, and Acknowledgement) have been invited to submit additional material to the Global LafargeHolcim Awards jury that will meet in March 2021. Global finalists are requested to provide a progress update and more detailed information on the environmental impact, circular use of materials, and lifecycle analysis of their project.

The results of the global phase of the competition will be announced in 2021.

All competition participants will be informed via email of the results, which will also be communicated through print, electronic and social media.

Our website search engine covers the web pages including project descriptions and expert profiles, PDFs, images and videos on the LafargeHolcim Foundation website. To improve your search results, here are some tips:

Basic search

Our search defaults to term-pairing AND. If you search sustainable construction - then the search engine will look for any items containing sustainable AND construction


photovoltaic OR solar

Looks for either word


(clay OR mud) AND (school OR university)

Combine alternative terms for more specific searching


geothermal -heating

Excludes a term from results, automatically ANDs other terms listed


"zero carbon"

Use quotation marks to search for a specific phrase or combination

Wildcards (one or more characters)


Asterisk (*) matches any word or phrase - so archit* will find architect, architecture, architectural as well as architrave
