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.
