CoatingsPro Magazine’s sixth annual Contractor Awards Program is now open for submissions, with a new deadline of Nov. 18, 2021! CoatingsPro Magazine, 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—which will be recognized at the annual AMPP Conference + Expo in March 2022 in San Antonio, Texas.

To be eligible for an award, the project(s) must meet the following criteria:
- 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.

- The entry form package must be delivered by 11:59 p.m. EST on November 18, 2021.
- Project pictures are required.
a. Digital format preferred in jpeg or GIF. Photos are preferred to show before, during, and after shots in files no smaller than 1 MB.

Judging the Awards
The award submissions will be rated by the CoatingsPro Editorial Advisory Group. These are industry experts who will judge the projects according to the following award guidelines:
- Did the contractor complete the nomination form? To be eligible, submit a completed nomination, including the completed form, photos, and a signed photo release form.
- Challenges and Problem Solving—Any challenges or unusual circumstances that had to be overcome? Did the challenge require out of the ordinary problem solving?
- Was the crew safety compliant per OSHA? The project should have been completed in an OSHA-compliant work environment. For example, if fall risks couldn’t have been engineered out of the project, all crew members should have worn fall protection when necessary.
- Were there measurable monetary savings?
- Was this an innovative project? Innovations can be large or small. Your crew may have used a new process, tool, or piece of equipment to complete the project, for example.
- Was this job efficient? This may be in relation to time or money savings, material wasted, etc.
- How was this project unique? Every job is different. What separates this project from others that you’ve completed? It may have contributed to a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) rating, for example.
