About NCSC Awards

Celebrating great initiatives driving the industry forward!



NCSC Awards is an annual competition where we celebrate the industry’s most successful, innovative, and creative efforts. It starts with national competitions in each Nordic country, whose winners then compete against each other in a Nordic Finale. We encourage our members to compete in one or more categories – a great opportunity to show off your work and inspire others! The first award to be founded was Best Shopping Center and it is considered the main competition category. Over the years NCSC has established additional categories. In 2019 a new award for Sustainability was introduced in Norway.

Best Shopping Center

This award will be given to a shopping center that has achieved something extraordinary, given its conditions and on its market, during the past year and can be seen as a role model and an inspiration to the entire industry.

Best Innovation

This award promotes innovative thinking and will be given to a center that has implemented a concept or an idea that goes beyond the traditional to create added value for visitors and center.

Best Marketing Campaign

There are many marketing campaigns brought to life each year. This award will be given to a center that has created an outstanding, time limited campaign with a clear goal and measurable effect.

Best Retail Concept

This is the industry's own award where shopping center managers nominate tenants they consider being great partners and offers its customer and the center an exceptional experience.

Best Sustainability

This award will be given to a center that has put sustainability on the agenda and set up its operations to satisfy todays and future requirements for how a center will contribute to society locally and globally.
