Monday (May 1) is the early deadline to nominate your outstanding projects to the D+D Elevation Awards. With only days left to submit your project for judging, make sure you have all the required materials in place to complete the nomination process before 11:59 p.m. ET May 1.

Why Participate?

  • Demonstrate quality and expertise of your work.
  • Get the visibility and recognition your work deserves.
  • Celebrate and promote the work of the entire project team.
  • Differentiate yourself from your competitors.

With only days left to submit your project for judging, make sure you have all the required materials in place to complete the nomination process before 11:59 p.m. ET May 1.

How to Enter

  • Read the rules: Visit www.durabilityanddesign.com/elevation to review eligibility and category requirements and to see the qualifications of our panel of judges.
  • Create your account: Click on the Go to the Nomination Form button at the top right of the Elevation Awards home page to begin the nomination process.
  • Choose your category: Select the technical or aesthetic category (or categories) that best suits your project. There is no limit to the number of nominations you can make or categories you can enter, but a new nomination form and separate entry fee is required for each.   
  • Tell us everything: Share the project particulars—everything from the basics such as name and location, contractor, start and end date; to specific details about processes, products and equipment used; substrate, challenges, highlights, end goals and more. Make sure the judges have enough information about the aesthetic and technical aspects of the project to aid in their analysis.
  • Show your work: Upload photos to support the nomination. Not only will this help the judges in the evaluation of your entry, but photos may be used in the summer issue of D+D magazine, where we’ll publish profiles of the inaugural nominees of the Elevation Awards and their projects.
  • Complete the process: Review and confirm the information you’ve submitted, enter payment for the $395 entry fee and submit your nomination. You can save your entry at any point in the process and come back to add more detail at any time until the closing date.

What’s Next?

After the nomination period closes, entries will be reviewed by a panel of 12 industry experts representing a range of disciplines. D+D readers will also be invited to cast a vote during the judging period this summer. The readers' cumulative vote will be considered equal to one additional judge's vote.

In addition to naming a winner in each of the nine categories, judges will also select an overall winner, chosen from among the individual category winners, to receive the Judges’ Choice Award. The Judges’ Choice Award recognizes an outstanding architecture project that best exemplifies the seamless combination of compelling aesthetics and high performance in the use of coatings and other substrate treatments.

Awardees will be notified in August, with an awards ceremony to follow at the CSI Annual Convention, CONSTRUCT, Sept. 13-16 in Providence, Rhode Island.

Winners will be announced in D+D News in September, the October issue of D+D In Depth and be featured in the fall issue of D+D, reached by a combined 44,000 subscribers.
