A high-performance coatings manufacturer has opened submissions for its Tank of the Year competition.

Running since 2006, Tnemec’s annual competition serves to celebrate the innovative and creative uses of the company’s coatings.

Submission Qualifications and Voting

For submissions, all tank styles are welcome, including new construction and renovation projects, but the tank must be completed by the nomination deadline. The deadline for submissions is Oct. 2.

Otherwise, the project itself must be no more than two years old, and a high-quality photo of the tank must be included with the submission, which can be given to your local Tnemec representative.

The 2016 winner of the Tank of the Year award was a 500,000-gallon municipal water tank located in Ann Arbor, Michigan, painted with images of native birds and fish.

Online community votes garnered Oct. 9-20 will determine the People’s Choice winner. From there, an internal panel of “water tank enthusiasts” will evaluate 11 other finalists, along with the People’s Choice winner. The 12 finalists will receive calendar placement, and will each be eligible for the Tank of the Year Award, which will go to the tank coating job that's judged to be the best.

Last Year’s Winner

The 2016 winner of the Tank of the Year award was a 500,000-gallon municipal water tank located in Ann Arbor, Michigan, painted with images of native birds and fish. This particular tank was originally a submission for the “Art in the Sky” public art contest. The design used an exterior coatings system from the company, which included the fluoropolymer finish Series 700 HydroFlon. The tank beat out 246 other entries.
