Last week at METALCON 2021, the show floor was all “a buzz” when the winners of the inaugural design and construction project photo competition were announced and recognized. The amazing projects featuring metal in design were showcased in the first ever “Metal in Architecture Gallery” prominently displayed on the METALCON show floor (pictured above). We congratulate the following winners:

Architects, designers, contractors, manufacturers and owners were invited to submit high-quality photos of their best, coolest, most interesting and inspiring projects that featured metal in the interior OR exterior design in one of the following categories: Roofs; Walls; Interiors; and Ornamental/Architectural Features.

A panel of judges comprised of the Metal Construction Association (MCA) council chairs and other metal construction and design industry experts determined one winner in each of the four categories with one grand-prize winner. Entries were judged based on the use of metal in design and construction communicated through photographs, not photo composition. Photos selected for inclusion in the gallery were automatically entered to win, and the grand-prize winner was awarded a $1000 cash prize.

“We were excited to receive such a great response, enabling us to create a beautiful display on-site of projects that illustrate the beauty, durability and functionality of metal in all kinds of architecture, from fire houses and truck stops to museums,” said Judy Geller, METALCON’s Vice President of Tradeshows. “We are grateful to all of those who participated and to ATAS International for donating back the grand prize win of $1000 to Feeding Tampa Bay as part of our annual giving back program.”
