The Signatures of Loudoun Design Excellence Awards recognize the public spaces and buildings that reflect outstanding design, renovation, adaptive reuse and visually groundbreaking projects in Loudoun County, Virginia.
Nominations are now being accepted for the 2018 awards, and everyone is encouraged to submit their favorite places.
“As we meet with businesses from around the country, a common theme is the recognition of Loudoun’s strong sense of place. Through thoughtful planning and design, Loudoun is a very attractive place to do business – in every sense of the word,” says Loudoun Economic Development’s Executive Director Buddy Rizer.
Nominations will be accepted through by Wednesday, March 7 and can be submitted at biz.loudoun.gov/DesignAwards.
There is no cost to submit a nomination and no age limit for participation. Winners will be announced at a June meeting of the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors and celebrated at a special reception.
“We’re looking for input from the community on what they see as great design in public spaces, historic renovations, and visually appealing projects,” Rizer said. “And I encourage the business community and other organizations to self-nominate. Brokers, developers, architects – all are welcome to nominate their clients or projects.”
Loudoun Economic Development cosponsors the Signatures Awards program with the Loudoun County Design Cabinet, an all-volunteer, award-winning group of professional architects, planners and engineers.
