The Mayor’s Urban Design Awards are a partnered program with the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada (RAIC). Some winners selected at MUDA 2013 will compete in the National Urban Design Awards early in 2014. The three exceptions are the Mawson Award, City Edge Development and The Great City, Great Design award as these are award categories that have been adopted at the local level only.
