As of this summer, CoatingsPro Magazine’s eighth annual Contractor Awards Program is open for submissions! CoatingsPro, which takes a real-world look at the coatings industry, showcases projects and crews that demonstrate excellence in the commercial and industrial high-performance coatings sectors in this annual program.

Award winners are recognized in seven categories — Commercial Concrete, Commercial Roof, Industrial Concrete, Industrial Steel, Specialty Project, Work It Safe, and Contractor/Crew MVP. 

Winners will be formally recognized at the next AMPP Annual Conference + Expo in March 2024 in New Orleans, Louisiana.

“It doesn't get any better than being recognized as an industry leader when judged by your peers,” says Gary Harvey, general manager at Wedge Roofing, which has been named as a CoatingsPro Contractor Awards winner for seven years running. 

“When a potential new client sees our national awards and industry accolades, it instills confidence in them of us and trust in themselves for making a great choice by selecting us,” Harvey adds. “High-quality glossy publications featuring our projects makes excellent case studies or project profiles that go out in our collateral materials given to all new clients.”

Award submissions will be judged by a set of criteria guidelines, such as challenges overcome on the project; any problem solving that was displayed; being safety compliant; any measurable monetary savings; and factors related to innovation, efficiency, or uniqueness.

Anyone is eligible to submit a project or crew, but the nomination must focus on one specific project from the coatings contractor’s point of view. Project pictures are required, and there is no fee to enter.
