The Asia-Pacific Housing Forum Innovation Awards promotes innovations in affordable housing solutions across multiple sectors to decrease the housing deficit. The awards seek to demonstrate the importance of strategic collaboration that fosters innovations, especially through people-public-private partnerships. The focus of these awards will be to promote and reward initiatives that address a real need and provide affordable, disaster-resilient, inclusive, and sustainable solutions with an added lens of post-pandemic considerations.
Submissions will be reviewed by a jury comprised of influential stakeholders in the field of affordable, resilient housing, including representatives from our sponsors The Hilti Foundation, Whirlpool, EU SWITCH-Asia and Habitat for Humanity. Previous winners from the 2019 Innovation Awards will also be included in the jury panels.
The Innovation Awards committee will announce the top 12 innovators on the aphousinforum.org website on October 15, 2021. They will also be notified via email and be given additional guidance for the submission and development of their videos and 5-minute presentation deck. The videos will be presented at the Grand Premiere on December 1, 2021.
The Grand Premiere will be a virtual event where finalists will pitch their initiatives to a jury panel and a live audience. Votes from the jury panel and the audience will determine the winners in each category. The winner for each category will be announced on December 8, 2021 during the main Asia-Pacific Housing Forum.
