Are there photo requirements?

No, but it is best that photos be 2000 pixel in height or width. No logos are allowed on the photos unless in the marketing categories. Professional photographs are best but not required. JPEG format is best.

What is included in the kitchen category?

The kitchen category price includes: cabinetry, countertops, backsplash, flooring, finishes (faucets, lighting, etc.)

My logo is on all of my floorplans, is this ok?
No, all logos must be removed from floor plans before you submit them.

Please submit your company logo to for use in awards pamphlet, video and advertising.

I entered a project in a previous year, and it did not win.  Can I re-submit the same entry?
Yes, so long as the project meets all of our current eligibility criteria.  If your project was named a winner in a previous year, you cannot resubmit it to the competition in a similar award category.

Do my co-submitters have to be members?
Yes.  These are the PKHBA awards, so you have to be a member of PKHBA to enter. Your building partners may join the Association to be named a co-submitter on your project, see Membership Requirements for more details.

What happens if my entry is the only one submitted in a category?
Please reference the Eligibility Requirements.

Should I include a finished basement in my calculation of square-footage?
Yes. Include all finished, live-able space when calculating square-footage. For example, the finished portion of a basement is included, but a utility room is not.

Can I submit the project, or portions of the project in more than one category?
Yes. If you think your project is good enough to win more than once - go for it!

I provided the design for the project but was not "on the tools" building it. Can I still submit for an award?
Members who are substantially involved in the construction of the project (e.g. project manage or act as general contractors on a project but do not complete any of the physical work) may submit the project for an award and MUST INCLUDE any involved PKHBA member companies as co-submitters.
