The submission fee is $125 U.S. per application for GRHC members and $195 U.S. for nonmembers.

The Green Roof & Wall Design Awards celebrate excellence in innovative and integrative green roof and wall design, raising awareness of the multiple benefits that green infrastructure can provide clients and the general public. The awards are selected by a seven-member, multi-disciplinary judging team which includes architects, landscape architects, engineers and horticulturists. Submissions are evaluated according to a broad range of weighted criteria including aesthetic, economic, functional and ecological components.

Submissions will be accepted until 11:59 p.m. PST, July 6th. Applicants will be notified of the judges' decisions by Aug. 9. The awards will be officially presented Dec. 2nd, 2011 at CitiesAlive: The 9th Annual Green Roof & Wall Conference.
