SSPC is looking for nominations for all types of structures: bridges, tanks, concrete structures, industrial or commercial facilities.

The descriptions of the Structure Awards are listed below. Except for the Charles G. Munger longevity award and the Military Coatings Project Award of Excellence, the work on the structures must have been completed between July 1, 2012 and June 30, 2013.

William Johnson Award: For outstanding achievement demonstrating aesthetic merit in industrial or commercial coatings work. The qualities that are considered for aesthetic merit include color, gloss or texture, or that the coating on the structure complements the environment while enhancing the structure itself. The coating may represent a theme, an object or a specific graphic design.

Crone Knoy Award: For outstanding achievement in commercial or industrial coatings work that demonstrates innovation, durability or utility. The qualities that may represent outstanding achievement in this area include excellence in craftsmanship or execution of work, use of state of the art techniques or products to creatively solve problems or provide long-term service.

Charles G. Munger Award: For the outstanding industrial or commercial coatings project demonstrating longevity of the original coating. The structure may have had spot repairs or overcoating with the original coating still in-tact.

George Campbell Award: For outstanding achievement in the completion of a difficult or complex industrial or commercial coatings project. The qualities that may represent achievement in a difficult or complex structure may include work occurring in harsh or extreme environmental conditions; work completed under strict time constraints, work done with limited access or in high traffic areas; work on a structure with complex structural components; or lastly a project that requires coordination with multiple trades or sub-contractors.

Military Coatings Project Award of Excellence: This award is in recognition of the exceptional coatings work performed on U.S. military ships, structures or facilities.

A representative of the structure's owner must attend the luncheon to accept the award and must give permission for the project to appear in a JPCL photo essay.
