Every year since 2008 at the ASLA Annual Meeting and EXPO, we’ve hosted the Landscape Architecture Magazine Advertising Awards, aka the LAMMYs, to honor our top advertisers from the past year. It’s a competition juried by a group of landscape architects who are also specifiers, and it’s open to any advertiser who bought at least one full-page advertisement or more in the magazine during the previous year. The award categories are Best Graphic Quality, Best Message, and Most Persuasive, as well as Advertisement of the Year. There is also the  Advertising Hall of Fame, for companies whose work has been consistently strong. This year, there were more than 400 advertisers eligible for the LAMMYs.

The 2014 jury included Scott L. Howard, ASLA, of Howard-Fairbairn Site Design; Margot Jacobs, Associate ASLA, of Mia Lehrer + Associates; Jennifer Nitzky, ASLA, of Robert A. M. Stern Architects; Michael Skowlund, ASLA, of Hoerr Schaudt Landscape Architects; Joshua T. Tiller, ASLA, of J. K. Tiller Associates; Jeffrey A. Townsend, ASLA, of Jacobs; and James J. Wolterman, FASLA, of SWT Design.
