Vote for Best Project of the Year

We are just weeks away from handing out the 32nd annual BILD Awards and we want to invite you to vote in a new and special category this year. The BILD Awards is the Association's way of acknowledging and celebrating the best our industry has to offer and we want the public (and future residents of some of these projects) to participate in the festivities.

So this year, we are launching the inaugural People's Choice Award and the project that receives the most votes on our awards website between April 11-25 will win.

All you have to do is visit the People's Choice Award page at www.bildawards.com and check out the 10 finalists before casting your vote right there on the page. The nominees for this new category have been selected by an esteemed awards jury as finalists in the Project of the Year low-rise and high-rise categories, so there are at least three trophies up for grabs!

When you visit the webpage, I encourage you to look at each of the projects and all of the material submitted by the builder. Before casting your vote take notice of everything from the product design to the advertising and promotion. I also invite you to visit sales offices, look at floor plans and flip through magazine ads. You never know, one of the finalists could be right in your neighbourhood - or maybe you're already a resident living in one.

It isn't called the People's Choice Award for nothin'. We want your input and we want to know which project you would crown as the best. The inaugural winner of the People's Choice Award will be announced at the BILD Awards on April 27. The Association's annual awards night is a special one because it recognizes ground-breaking projects across the GTA and the industry leaders that build them.
