This year's 37 winners were selected from among 620 entries.

This year's Landmark Award, which "recognizes a distinguished landscape architecture project completed between 15 and 50 years ago that retains its original design integrity and contributes to the public realm of its community," went to the Village of Yorkville Park, Toronto, Ontario, Canada, by Ken Smith Landscape Architect and Schwartz Smith Meyer Landscape Architects, Inc.
