2015 Pinnacle Awards & Grande Pinnacle Award

Join natural stone professionals from around the world in entering the 2015 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.

In 2015, MIA has added two new categories to the Pinnacle Awards competition: "Kitchen of the Year" and "Bath of the Year." Be one of the first MIA members to receive one of these new coveted awards! With the announcement that Vitoria Stone Fair-Marmomacc Latin America will sponsor these new awards, the winners will receive a free trip to the 2016 Vitoria Stone Fair-Marmomacc Latin America, to be held February 16-19, 2016 in Espirito Santo, Brazil.

The Grande Pinnacle Award, sponsored by Marmomacc, 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 Marmomacc 2016, as well as an invitation to the gala dinner that closes the world's largest stone show.

FOR THE FIFTH YEAR! A Grande Pinnacle Award will be presented to one Architect of the Winning Project.

Again in 2015, Marmomacc will also 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 Marmomacc 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.
