LOUISVILLEHardscape North America is now accepting entries for the Sixth Annual Hardscape North America (HNA) Hardscape Project Awards to be presented during the event this October.

200 HNA Awards Logo6thThe deadline for entries is Sept. 18, with a discount offered to entries submitted by Sept. 4. Projects for consideration must have been completed between Nov. 1, 2009, and June 30, 2013.

The HNA Hardscape Project Awards recognize the contractor's ability to create outstanding hardscape projects. Twenty-four award categories include residential and commercial applications using a variety of products including concrete pavers, clay pavers, segmental retaining walls and projects of different sizes.

"There are many hardscape awards programs available to designers but the HNA Hardscape Project Awards truly recognizes the quality of construction and craftsmanship by the contractor", says Dave Carter, chairman of the board of the Interlocking Concrete Pavement Institute (ICPI).

"We have received unbelievable feedback after the HNA Hardscape Project Award was presented to us,” said past winner Parker Condit, marketing director of JB’s Landscaping LLC. “It was such an honor to be recognized for everything we put into that project and we are still seeing the residual effects, months later.

“It's nice that we don't have to verbally prove our level of quality or creativity with prospective customers.”

The early bird entry fee is $100 for members of ICPI, Brick Industry Association (BIA) or National Concrete Masonry Association (NCMA), and $200 for non-members. The early-bird rates continue through Sept. 4; after that, the entry fee is $140 for members and $240 for non-members.

Winning entries will be featured in Interlock Design Magazine and other trade media, as well as on the HNA website.

Awards will be presented at a special breakfast on Oct. 25 at the Hyatt Regency Louisville in Louisville, Ky., during HNA 2013. The breakfast is open to all HNA registrants as an optional ticketed event; tickets are $19 per person or $150 for a reserved table of eight.

The HNA Hardscape Project Awards are produced by the ICPI, BIA and NCMA. Sponsors of the awards and breakfast banquet are Belgard and Ewing Hardscapes.
