 Entries consist of:

  • An Entry Form (information about the project)
  • A Work Responsibility Chart (what you did or did not do on the project)
  • A Project Description (650 words or fewer)
  • An As-Built Plan (up to three PDFs to show your set of as-built plans)
  • Digital Photos & Photo Descriptions (up to 20, with a 50-word maximum per photo description)


Is my Project Award-Winning?

There are many components that make up an award-winning project. By reviewing the criteria the judges use, you'll get a good picture of how to evaluate your project. Click here to download a PDF with the criteria the judges use.


MNLA business members may submit up to three projects per year. Non-members are not eligible to submit entries. There are no categories; all installed landscapes are potentially eligible. To qualify for judging, you must verify that:

  • The Project Name, Work Responsibility Chart, Photos, Photo Descriptions, Project Description, and As-Built Plan are free of identifiable people, company names, and logos.
  • The Work Responsibility Chart comments do not exceed 50 words.
  • The Photo Descriptions do not exceed 50 words.
  • The Project Description does not exceed 650 words.
  • The As-Built Plan is a complete set of plans, is presentation-quality, all plants and hardscape materials are labelled correctly and specifically located, and that the plan includes a north arrow and scale.

Each entry will be judged solely on its own merits. Interested in seeing what criteria the judges use? Click here to download a PDF with the criteria the judges use.
