“In connection with the entry into the third decade of the competition, we decided to extend the awards to new categories. The first is Hall of Fame. One person will be presented by the organizer of the competition every year, who in the past years has been exceptionally involved in the development, promotion and reputation of the real estate market, development and related fields. From this year's edition, the Environmentally Friendly Project Award will also be awarded: a representative of the Czech Green Building Council will be a member of the competition jury, who will be the guarantor of this category and will choose one from all nominated projects to win the award. Another novelty is the change of the venue of the gala evening, where the results will be announced in November and awards will be given to the best projects in all announced categories. introduces the news of this year's Jana Hrabětová, competition director .

The organizer and organizer of the competition is  BEST OF REALTY, sro , which closely co-operates with real estate agents, market research agencies, developers, architects, banks, professional associations, consulting companies and other relevant entities in the Czech real estate and development market. The competition is traditionally held under the auspices of the  Association for Real Estate Market Development  (ARTN), which brings together important personalities of the Czech development scene and related fields.

Applicants for the "Best of Realty" title  in the appropriate category must  submit an electronic application form to the competition organizer  no later than 2 September 2019 - a completed nomination form ( www.bestofrealty.cz ) along with high-quality photographs of the exterior and interior of the project. Applications and photos can be sent electronically now.

In order for a project to be eligible for a competition, it must meet a few  basic conditions . It must be "put on the market" in the true sense of the word. This means that at least 50 percent must be for rent or for sale; therefore, the owner can use a maximum of half. The project must be completed after 1 January 2018, but may not be nominated in the previous year of the competition (other stages of the project may be registered).

The decisive criteria  for assessing the quality of submitted projects are the choice of location, urban and architectural design, quality of implementation, environmental friendliness and, of course, real estate market success. The project can only be appreciated by a project that adds significant added value. Those interested in the nomination can see the rules of the competition and its previous years on the competition website  www.bestofrealty.cz .
