Builders, craftsmen, architects and designers across Sussex are being invited to showcase their work through a special awards scheme.
2015 marks the 17th anniversary of the Sussex Heritage Trust Awards which are designed to recognise and reward high quality conservation, restoration and good design of newly built projects.
The awards also aim to encourage the use of traditional skills and craft.
The Trust launched the awards last week at Ditchling Museum of Art and Craft which was a 2014 winner in the Public & Community category.
Trust chairman, Dr John Godfrey, a Deputy Lieutenant for West Sussex, said: “It has never been more relevant in 2015 to ‘design for the future and respect the past’ and we welcome entries for this year’s Awards by April 10, 2015.
“I am very grateful for all of our sponsors, winners and everyone who takes part”.
