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 new this year… cost efficient projects.

We encourage you to enter your exceptional projects which will be evaluated by a distinguished international jury. Award recipients receive featured coverage in The Designer, extensive public relations dissemination and will be honored at the APLD Awards banquet in Cleveland, Ohio, in June 2011.

Don’t forget about the Student Landscape Design Awards Program  that recognizes excellent student projects in landscape design. Student winners are highlighted in an issue of The Designer and receive an award at the conference in June, along with 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.

Don’t miss the hints and tips on submitting a successful award entry from the APLD Awards Committee near the end of the packet – this is definitely valuable information.

Good luck — entries are due by February 1, 2011.
