The following are essential entry items, helping the judges to understand the site and the design. As judging will be made solely on the basis of submitted material, clarity and detail are important.
Please Note - Your name or the name of your business must not appear on any documents submitted. The only identification to be used is your AILDM member number. The only exception to this is the client permission form on which your name is stated.

4. Plans and drawings to clearly illustrate the design.

The Awards Committee has selected a diverse judging panel with extensive knowledge and experience in all fields of the Landscape industry. Three judges will be allocated to each category. The members of the Judging panel are not current AILDM members.
To ensure equitable evaluation and judging of projects, a consistent set of judging criteria has been developed. Judges understand that a project may not encompass all aspects of criteria.
A minimum number of entries for each category will be determined by the Awards Committee for the category to be judged. If the minimum number is not received the Awards Committee will contact the entrant and entrance fees will be refunded.
