Green Roofs for Healthy Cities (GRHC) is now accepting submissions for the 2011 Green Roof and Wall Design Awards of Excellence, presented at CitiesAlive: The 9th Annual Green Roof & Wall Conference in Philadelphia, Nov. 30 – Dec. 3.

Submission forms for the Green Roof Design Awards and the Green Wall Design Awards are now available at http://www.greenroofs.org/awardsexcellence. To submit a project, applicants should download the submission form, prepare a 5-10 slide photo presentation (in PowerPoint or .pdf format) and use the automated online submission service. 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.

There are seven design award categories, three for extensive green roofs, three for intensive green roofs and one for green walls. Applicants may submit more than one project for the same or different award categories.

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.
