2016 Pinnacle Awards & Grande Pinnacle Award

Join natural stone professionals from around the world in entering the 2016 Pinnacle Awards competition. These highly coveted awards are given to projects whose beauty, creativity, ingenuity, and craftsmanship exemplify professional mastery in the use of natural stone in commercial and residential applications. As a Pinnacle Award winner, you will receive widespread recognition for your professional accomplishments.

For the second year, Vitoria Stone Fair-Marmomac Latin America will sponsor the Kitchen of the Year and Bath of the Year awards. Winners will receive a free trip to the 2017 Vitoria Stone Fair-Marmomac Latin America, to be held February 2017 in Espirito Santo, Brazil. 

The Grande Pinnacle Award, sponsored by Marmomac, will be presented to the best project across all categories. The Grande Pinnacle Award is created by Tobia Scarpa, an award-winning architect, designer, and restoration specialist in Verona, Italy. The award also entitles the winner to round-trip economy airfare, 5-nights hotel room, meals and registration to Marmomac 2016, as well as an invitation to the gala dinner that closes the world's largest stone show.

FOR THE SIXTH YEAR! A Grande Pinnacle Award will be presented to one architect of the winning project.

Again in 2016, Marmomac will present a Grande Pinnacle Award to the architect from the firm involved in the winning project. In addition, the architect will win a trip to Marmomac to attend Veronafiere's week-long continuing education program on designing with natural stone. The winner will receive round-trip economy airfare and complimentary hotel for five nights, as well as local meals and transportation, while taking part in this 20+ AIA/CES program.
