Let your company shine through the Awards of Excellence
Are you looking for a way to showcase your company? What about a new attractive feature to market to potential clients? Let your company shine through Landscape Ontario’s Awards of Excellence program.

Last year’s awards boasted increased entries and breathtaking projects, which were featured at the Awards of Excellence ceremony held each year at LO’s Congress in January.

This year, we expect nothing less and are pleased to add an additional category within the Landscape Lighting sector; holiday lighting. While the entry deadline may seem at a distance, you need at least six photographs as well as an authorization form signed by the property owner. Be sure to give yourself lots of time to prepare and submit your entry.

Entries to Awards of Excellence Construction, Maintenance and Design programs are now open until the Oct. 1 deadline. Submit your entry at loawards.com, where you will find detailed information about the categories and guidelines, eligibility requirements and submission details. All awards submissions are completed online.

You will need a username and password to login. If you do not have one, or cannot remember your password, no problem. The system will prompt you to either create a new account, or you can reset your password. From there, you will find a step-by-step guide for awards submission, starting with company information and category selection. You can always save-as-you-go throughout the entry process. The system will save what information you have input, and you can log back in anytime to complete you entry.

When you login, you will need the following to complete your entry:
  • Contact information of person entering on behalf of the  company
  • jpg photographs of the project; minimum six and a maximum of 15
  • A point-form project summary, describing what you were trying to achieve with your project, including any quirks or conditions imposed by the property owner, conservation authority, etc.
  • You will be prompted to print an Authorization Signatures form during your submission. The client/property owner needs to sign this
  • Credit card information for payment. Please note that your entry will not be officially submitted until payment is received.
If you have any questions about the Awards program, or the entry submission process, or you need some help navigating the online system, contact Myscha Burton at 1-800-265-5656, ext. 333, or email awards@landscapeontario.com.
