Designing and building with masonry can be a time-consuming and work-intensive process, but it often has very impressive results. That is why MASONRY CONSTRUCTION magazine's 9th annual “Project of the Year” competition proudly honors and publicizes examples of such outstanding masonry construction throughout the industry. In addition to recognizing top quality design and craftsmanship, these awards also serve to inspire excellence in masonry professionals.

We encourage participants to enter their best masonry projects completed in the past two years, in any of 11 different categories (see list below). A panel of judges will review the entries and select the winners. (There may not be a winner in every category, depending on the number and quality of entries in each.)

The top project among all those submitted, regardless of category, will receive the prestigious “Project of the Year” award.
