The goal of the Excellence In Masonry Architectural Awards is to recognize outstanding masonry projects featuring brick, block and stone will be recognized for design, workmanship and creativity.
A distinguished panel of out-of-state jurists will judge the entries. The Arizona Masonry Guild recognizes the professionalism and expertise of the individual jurors, encourages and supports the jury’s discretion in its choice of projects. The decisions of the jury will determine the type of awards which may include Honor, Merit and Citation awards within categories of Residential and Non-Residential. A submittal entry does not guarantee an award regardless of the number of entries received per category.
Other Awards will include:
Craftsmanship Award – Residential and Non-Residential: All projects submitted will be considered for the Craftsmanship Award. These awards will be selected by a panel of three retired masonry contractors.
Gold Trowel Award – Residential and Non-Residential: An outstanding project for each category as selected by this year’s jury.

The architectural firm, structural engineering firm, general contractor, major masonry supplier(s), masonry contractor(s), and the owner of the project for each winning project.
