2003 ASLA Awards

This was a year of changes in the ASLA awards program. ASLA added a new award and changed some of the existing award categories. Most notable, however, was the big boost that the program got from its entrants, who came out in record numbers, almost doubling last year’s submissions.

The 238 entries from 2002 grew to a whopping 436 this year. What was responsible for this huge jump? It’s being attributed largely to increased promotion of the awards via trade publications, web sites, regional chapters, and related international societies. ASLA chapter award winners were also actively encouraged to enter. In addition, murky and complicated awards guidelines may have limited interest in the program in the past; this year the guidelines were rewritten to make them easier to understand and follow, which also may have encouraged people to enter the competition.

Other changes: The Landscape Architecture Award of Excellence has been recast as a medal, leaving an opening for a new award, the Community Service Award. The Classic Award was renamed the Landmark Award.
