For over 40 years, the Masonry Advisory Council has proudly hosted our “Excellence in Masonry Architectural Award” program. This masonry awards program recognizes architectural design excellence and the talent behind the execution of making those design concepts a construction reality. Architectural firms, mason contractors, and product suppliers are recognized for their contribution to architectural design, construction expertise, and the use of brick, block, and stone materials to complete commercial and residential projects.

Excellence in Masonry is hosted every 18 months in the Chicagoland area by the Masonry Advisory Council. Due to current events, the next awards program is tentatively set to be judged and hosted in the fall or early winter of 2021.

Now is a good time to take high quality photos of your projects in good weather. You can also gather the information needed for submission, provide a project description and enter it early. We’ll have the entry portal open soon so that you can submit projects as you complete them.

These links provide additional information and FAQ’s to help you prepare your entries.
