Winners in all categories will be awarded a handsome plaque suitable for display in any office and the overall winner will receive the Bert Gast Memorial Trophy. In addition, a “People’s Choice Award” will be voted on by MBNA members! All entries will be on display and recognition and honors will be presented at each year’s Industry Show (odd years) or MBUniversity Conference (even years).
All designs must originate from a MBNA member firm. Entries must include either an 8 x 10 color print and/or high-res (300 dpi or more) electronic image and be accompanied by a completed entry form. Contest judges will look at elements of proportion, balance and the story the monument conveys when judging entries.
Be sure to prepare any relevant information and documents prior to applying; such as type/color of stone, overall height and width, detailed description of the design as well as photos of the design.
Deadline for all entries is December 30 each year.
