Applications are now open to nominate the best property developments in Vietnam, the organisers said, adding they welcome entries from HCM City, Hanoi, Da Nang, Ha Long Bay, Phu Quoc and Nha Trang – making it the biggest real estate awards in the country.

Instituted in 2015, the awards are given away by PropertyGuru Group and Oriental Media Vietnam.

Nominations would be accepted until April 20, 2018, and as usual there is no fee to enter in any category, the organisers said.

For the fourth edition, official charity partner CARE International will present the CARE Special Recognition in Positive Construction Practices award to developers who demonstrate extraordinary commitment to occupational safety and well-being of construction workers, especially women, and provide equal opportunity, training and security.

New categories have been added this year - Best Resort Architectural Design and Best Resort Interior Design – in acknowledgment of Vietnam’s growing reputation as a top resort destination.

The judges will also honour public facility and corporate headquarter design to deserving companies and projects around the country.

“With continued strong GDP growth, further infrastructure development, improved connectivity and accessibility, and foreign direct investment figures to real estate market reaching 70 percent year-on-year, we see a strong future for the Vietnamese real estate industry,” said Terry Blackburn, founder and managing director of the PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards.

“Hanoi and HCM City remain the sector’s biggest draws, with their offerings of developments at different price points, from affordable housing to luxury condominiums. It’s also great to see other locations such as Da Nang, Ha Long Bay and Nha Trang taking their place alongside the premier resort destinations of Southeast Asia.”
The nominations will undergo thorough screening and be visited by judges and local inspection teams sent by awards supervisor BDO Vietnam.

The official shortlist will be revealed in the third week of May 2018, and the winners and highly commended companies announced at the fourth annual black-tie gala dinner and awards ceremony in June 2018.
