This is a cross category award given in recognition of landscape architecture that has made a significant difference to improving the healthy communities and/or built and natural environments of regional Australia. The Regional Achievement in Landscape Architecture may be awarded in Queensland's key regions of Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast, Darling Downs, Central Queensland and North Queensland. Awards will be considered by the jury based on entries captured as part of the AILA Awards program – there is no separate entry process or fee. The Regional Achievement Award progresses through to the National Awards and is assessed against other regional achievement awards. This award can be given in combination with an Award of Excellence or a Landscape Architecture Award – in this case it would be elevated to the National Awards to both the regional and category the project was awarded in. More than one Regional Achievement Award may be given in any region. Chapter and National Juries may choose not to award a Regional Achievement Award.
