With the nomination deadline for the inaugural PaintSquare Prestige Awards now less than two weeks away, there’s still time to enter your favorite product, innovation or industry figure to be honored.

The Prestige Awards are designed to recognize the best of the best in the protective, marine and industrial coatings industries, including coatings and equipment. A panel of expert judges will adjudicate the Top People and Top Innovations sections of the awards program, and a popular vote of PaintSquare readers will determine winners in the Top Products section.

Many of the top brands in the business, including PPG, Sherwin-Williams, Carboline Graco, Titan and many more, already have products and people in the running for awards.

Prestige Awards

The Top People section will honor the best industry figures in four categories: formulator, specifier, contractor and educator. This section will be judge by a group of expert JPCL contributors and nominations are free.

The Top Innovations section seeks to recognize recent innovations in two categories: coatings and equipment. To be eligible, a product must have come to market in the past three years and must have made a significant impact in how work is done in the industry. This section will be judged by experts from the specifier and contractor fields.

Top Products will be judged by PaintSquare readers, and cover a number of subcategories of coatings, surface-preparation tools and equipment, application equipment, access and environmental equipment, safety equipment and more.

All nominees will be featured in the fall issue of PaintSquare Press and online at, and winners will be announced in the winter issue of PSP, due out in December.
