2018 Design Awards

Entry forms and information for the 2018 Design Awards competition are now posted at FloridaPoolPro.com/programs-design.

The annual Florida Swimming Pool Association Design Awards program gives members an opportunity to enter their pools, spas and water features for judging on workmanship, soundness of design, beauty, practicality and safety. Categories customized for Florida pool construction divide the entries by size, type of construction and features.

Pools are awarded a Gold, Silver, Bronze or Award of Merit based on a panel of industry judges’ review. Each award winner receives a plaque with a mounted photo of the pool or spa so they may display their accomplishment to prospective customers.

Award winning pools are submitted to national industry magazines for publication and also distributed to the winners’ local media.

A special logo is available for the winners to use in ads, business cards and on company letterhead.

You can view a full gallery of the 2017 FSPA Design Award Winners on FSPA’s Pinterest profile.

All entrants must be current members of the Florida Swimming Pool Association. Entries must arrive at the FSPA Sarasota office by 5:00 p.m. on Tuesday, October 31, 2017.

*FSPA membership must be paid in full to participate in Design Awards.
