The CTBUH has launched its 2019 Awards Program and is now accepting submissions. Major changes have been implemented this year to make the judging of projects facing similar challenges fairer. Specifically, Best Tall Buildings will be judged according to similar height and function categories, rather than within geographic regions. In addition, seven new awards have been introduced, to recognize the specific engineering achievements across projects, as well as the importance of Interior Spaces and Building Renovation.

All winning projects will be recognized at the 2019 Tall + Urban Innovation Conference which, this year, will be hosted in Shenzhen, China from 8–10 April 2019. The period for submissions is 1 August–30 September 2018.
