The President’s cocktail evening, is an opportunity to acknowledge and celebrate new fellows, life members, newly registered members and dedicated volunteers.


The NZILA President’s Awards which are presented at the President's cocktail evening  acknowledge those who advance the profession of Landscape Architecture through their time, dedication, passion and vision.

The President’s Awards can be conferred upon both NZILA members and non-members, individuals and groups/organisations.

The awards provide the opportunity to also recognise clients, other design disciplines and organisations that contribute to the development and promotion of Landscape Architecture.
