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, nonresidential, 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, Mich., 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. 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.
Last year, the APLD developed an online entry system for this competition. Entrants are encouraged to use this fast, easy way to enter submissions. The secure website allows entrants to upload all of their materials and photos, and also allows for online payment of entry fees. Online entry is available for both the professional and student competitions. Submission materials can also be submitted on a CD, accompanied by the application and entry fee to APLD Headquarters, 4305 North 6th Street, Suite A, Harrisburg, PA 17110. Entries are due February 1, 2013!
