DESIGNERS of the Isle of Wight’s best buildings stand a chance of winning a top award.

The Solent Design Awards, organised by the Partnership for Urban South Hampshire, invites submissions in a number of categories across Hampshire and the Island.

Any building or development completed after March 31 2012 is eligible from a public or commercial building to a housing development or street scene improvement scheme.

They can be nominated by architects, contractors, clients or local authorities and there is a people’s choice section.

The event, sponsored by Bouygues, was aimed at encouraging quality places to live and work.

PUSH Chairman Sean Woodward said: "It's not just iconic buildings and spaces that we're looking for. Our 2012 winners included Forest Park School in Totton, Sunfield Close in Andover and the Sea City Museum in Southampton.

"Our judges will be looking for buildings or places of outstanding design standards, which have a positive impact on their surrounding communities."

Submissions must be received by 4pm on September 30.

The shortlist will be published on October 8, with the public vote beginning on October 13 and closing on November 3, in time for the awards ceremony on the Mary Rose on November 20.
