The £20,000 Permaculture Magazine Prize 2018 aims to help transform communities and regenerate habitats and to highlight the worldwide successes of the growing permaculture movement. It will be judged by a prestigious panel of international judges.

“In a time of global crisis, the world needs well designed, regenerative and inspiring examples of permaculture. We have established this prize to celebrate and support pioneering, best practice projects and tell their stories to shine a light in the darkness.” Maddy and Tim Harland, founders of Permaculture Magazine and Permanent Publications.
Permaculture Magazine is looking for permaculture projects that are:
* Regenerating damaged land * Enhancing habitat and biodiversity
* Helping people to gain practical and community skills
* Adding value to produce and developing local economies
* Building community, creating social glue and greater economic resilience
* Modelling new ways of cooperating and new cultural paradigms
Permaculture Magazine wants to specifically award money to permaculture projects that reach ordinary people and demonstrate best practice permaculture both in terms of ecological and socially / culturally innovative design. Any project can apply if it has been functioning for at least three years and has established its place within its community.
Please tell permaculture projects around the world about the prize. Permaculture Magazine wants to hear from you, highlight your achievements to the world and help you in your next steps!
