We are looking for 18 people with a passion for property who are avid readers of Homes & Property, and who would like to be part of our judging panel for the Evening Standard New Homes Awards 2017.

You will join industry experts to choose this year’s very best new homes and developments in London and the South-East.

A shortlist of schemes will be prepared by the experts, who will visit each site, but the reader judges will make the final decisions, choosing the winners in each category.

To be a judge you don’t need any professional qualifications — just bags of enthusiasm for excellent architecture and design.

The awards cover all sectors of the industry, from starter homes to swish warehouse conversions, affordable homes to mansions.

Judging is completely independent so applicants should have no direct connections to housebuilders and must not have been on the selection panel before.


If you would like to take part, tell us in no more than 150 words why you feel up to the task, detailing any relevant knowledge and experience and reasons for your enthusiasm. 

You would need to be free for a couple of hours on the evening of Thursday, March 2 to attend the selection process in Kensington, (refreshments provided) and all day on Wednesday, April 5 for the judging day.
