Deadline Approaching for Prestige Awards Nominations
The deadline is nearing to submit nominations for the annual PaintSquare Prestige Awards, which recognizes the top people, products and projects in the industrial coatings field.
New this year, the 2021 Prestige Award process will be promoted in the pages of JPCL—including a feature on the award winners later in the year—presenting an exciting opportunity for recognition in the industry’s premier print publication.
This year’s awards are divided into four major categories: Top People, Top Innovations, Top Products and Top Project. Each category includes awards for people, products and projects that successfully perform specific roles in the preparation and execution of a protective coatings project.
“Not only does this make the potential audience for this year’s Prestige Awards coverage bigger than ever, but we at JPCL hope that our print coverage will help expand the pool of nominations, as well,” said Charlie Lange, Editor-in-Chief of JPCL. “Our panel of industry-leading judges look forward to reviewing what we hope will be a deep field of nominations from the many different sectors of the industry.”
Nominations are now open for this year’s awards for outstanding projects completed between March 2, 2020, and March 1, 2021.
The deadline for submissions is Oct. 1. There is no fee to enter.

Projects can be submitted from the Bridge and Highway, Water and Wastewater, Marine and Energy (including oil and gas production) sectors.
Project nominations should include details about the project and companies involved, as well as project photos.
