Thank you for forwarding Mr Dovey’s letter for comment. As one of the key convenors of the Australia Urban Design Award, I can confidently say that the judging process was fair and interests were appropriately declared. The sponsor was simply an observer. While there are those who might like to argue about the outcome, there is no basis for impugning the integrity of judges, nor the credibility of the process.
