The APLD Awards Committee and Staff announced that the 2013 International Landscape Design Awards entry packets are now available.
The APLD International Landscape Design Awards Program honors the best in landscape design from around the world. The program brings exceptional talent to the attention of peers, potential clients and the world of design.
Entry categories include residential, non-residential, small gardens, planting design, show gardens, specialty projects and cost efficient projects.
Award recipients receive featured coverage in The Designer, extensive public relations dissemination and will be honored at the APLD International Design Conference held in Detroit, Michigan in August 2013.
Additionally, the Student Landscape Design Awards Program recognizes excellent student projects in landscape design. Student winners are highlighted in an issue of The Designer and will receive an award at the conference in August 2013. The top student winner also receives a $250 scholarship.
Once again this year, the Distinctively Better Plant Design Award, sponsored by Monrovia Growers, will be chosen from the winning entries. The award recipient will receive $2,000 worth of Monrovia products.
Entries are due February 1, 2013.
Last year, APLD developed an online entry system for this competition. Entrants are encouraged to use this fast, easy way to enter their submissions. The special secure website allows entrants to upload all of their materials and photos themselves, and also allows for online payments of the entry fees. Online entry is available for both the professional and the student competitions. If you prefer, your submission materials can be submitted on a CD, accompanied by the application and entry fee to APLD Headquarters.
