The Green Building Showcase features a powerful Project Gallery, which has displayed hundreds of community submitted project boards since the showcase’s inception. The gallery displays project boards from both our Awards Competition as well as Display-only Submissions.

Awards Competition:

Have a project that you believe deserves extra recognition? Then consider entering into the Awards Competition, which features the Category Award Series and the Green Building of the Year Award.

Display-only Submissions:

If you just want to show off your showboard without competing in the competitions, this is the submission category for you. Display-only Submissions are only eligible for the People’s Choice Award.
