ACO Awards

From Issue No. 261 | October 26, 2017

It was a lovely evening at Osgoode Hall. About 100 gathered from across the province to honour some wonderful projects and individuals in a space which lends gravitas to the occasion. Food was great too! I had the fun of handing out the awards and having my picture taken with all the recipients. Thanks to Stephanie Mah for her great photography.

Here's the link to the list of Award winners with a bit about each award and who won.

This was the first year ACO had an outside jury. Thanks so much to Carol Kleinfeldt, Rollo Myers, Steve Otto, Gus Butterfield, Olivia Ashton and Robert Allsopp. ACO also had our submisison program online for the first time. The only disappointment was that there were no nominations for the J.D. Strachan Award given to a craftsperson for outstanding work over a career or in a particular project. It is an important principle of ACO awards that the nominator must be outside of the project team, ie with nothing to gain by winning the award.Thanks to all those who took the time to nominate projects. We know how many people are doing great work out there. It is important to remember to nominate your favourites.
