Chapter Awards

The intent of the Annual Maryland ASLA Awards Program is to encourage professional excellence in Maryland and the Washington Metropolitan Area by recognizing significant completed as well as un‐built Landscape Architectural projects. The objective is to bring public attention to the outstanding services of landscape architects by honoring them with professional awards for projects that demonstrate a superior quality of design and execution.

GUIDELINES:

  • FINAL DEADLINE FOR ENTRY: AUGUST 9TH, 2021 AT 12PM EDT.

  • Recipients will be honored at our annual MDASLA Awards Gala on October 14th, 2021 at the Center for Architecture and Design in Baltimore.

  • Entries shall be accepted from members of the Maryland Chapter of ASLA as well as members of other ASLA Chapters if the project is in the state of Maryland. ASLA membership is required to apply.
