Entering the Awards
The 2020 Building Excellence Awards was cancelled due to COVID-19.
Master Builders SA’s 2021 Awards program is more intensive and is to incorporate 2020/21 projects. Entries open online on Monday February 1st.
What does this ALL mean for the 2021 Awards Program?
- Projects submitted for the 2020 national awards program will still qualify for the 2021 state awards.
- If the submitted project was judged successful to be entered into the 2020 National Awards, it cannot be reentered into the 2021 National Awards, even if it wins a state category this year.
- If the submitted project was judged unsuccessful for entry into the 2020 National Awards, then it can be entered into the 2021 National awards program if it takes out a state award this year.
- Members can enter both 2020 and 2021 projects into the 2021 awards program (please view the project ‘practical completion dates in the Conditions of Entry Section in the 2021 Awards Guide HERE).
- Members’ ‘in progress’ submissions in the online entry system from 2020 were SAVED and will be accessible for members to continue on with once the system re-opens for the 2021 program on Monday February 1st.
- WHS projects from 2020 can still be entered into the 2021 awards program. Whilst the project may already be completed and finalised, judges can meet entrants at the project premises to judge.
- There will be no requirement for members to nominate a trade contractor in 2021, however all nominations for 2020 will be accepted and followed up by Master Builder SA for entry in 2021.
Once you decide what projects you believe are worthy of entering, check your project against the relevant criteria for its category.
You can then download the Awards Entry Guide for detailed information regarding categories and requirements of entry.
The 2021 Awards Entry Guide will be available for download on Monday January 18 here.
IMPORTANT NOTE: To qualify for a Major Award, ie. Display Home Builder of the Year, Residential Builder of the Year and Commercial Builder of the Year, you must have entered at least one sub-category.
