Alexandria, VA (PRWEB) April 10, 2013
The Association of Pool & Spa Professionals (APSP) announces a call for entries for the 2013 APSP International Awards of Excellence. The program recognizes and rewards installations of pools, spas, hot tubs and water features that showcase the most beautiful and creative work in the pool and spa industry.
APSP receives hundreds of entries each year, representing member firms across the U.S. and the world. Entries can be submitted here through August 1, 2013. Entries are critiqued and awarded by a judging panel of APSP members representing a cross section of the various segments of the pool and hot tub industry, as well as representatives from fields such as architecture and landscape design. Award recipients will be announced in the fall and celebrated at the International Pool | Spa | Patio Expo in November in Las Vegas.
“The Awards of Excellence program is an anticipated event every year that provides a creative way for APSP members to showcase their artistry and professionalism to the world,” said Bill Weber, APSP president and CEO. “In turn, consumers looking for inspiration for their own backyard escape can check out last year's award winning installations at APSP.org," added Weber.
The 2012 corporate sponsors included Latham Pool Products, Inc.; S.R. Smith; CNA Insurance; Hayward; Sundance® Spas/Jacuzzi® Hot Tubs; and Lonza. For 2013 sponsorship information, contact Helen Bloch at hbloch(at)apsp(dot)org.
