Five German entries are hoping to win a Mipim Award. It's up to the trade fair participants and the jury to decide who will take a trophy home.

This year, 205 projects from 58 countries have been submitted for the Mipim Award competition, 45 of which (from 21 countries) made it to the shortlist.

If there were a league table based on country affiliation, France would be in the lead with six finalists but only by a very small margin - five of the entries on the shortlist are from Germany. Since the five German finalists are all in different categories, they're not even competing against each other. On a par with Germany, China has submitted five short-listed entries, too. Trade fair visitors and the jury are going to decide jointly who's going home with or without a trophy in their luggage. Four finalists are from the UK; Spain, Italy and the Netherlands have presented three entries each.

Five German finalists marks a first in Mipim history. In the past, however, the Award used to be presented in far fewer categories and up until just a few years ago, only three projects had to fight it out against each other in each category. 2019 is seeing the addition of Mixed Use Properties replacing Green Buildings. According to Reed Midem, greenness and sustainability are now considered in all categories.

From the official inauguration of the trade fair up to 12 o'clock on March 14, all Mipim participants can cast a vote in the basement of Palais des Festivals in the Award Gallery. The audience vote and the jury vote will count equally.

Traditionally, the Award ceremony takes place on the Thursday night of the trade fair at the Grand Auditorium of Palais des Festivals. This year, it starts at 6.30pm and takes one hour. Afterwards, the winners and Mipim guests are welcome to celebrate with champagne and finger food.
