For more than two decades BUILDER has enlisted top builders and residential architects to judge our most prestigious competition. With each passing year, the level of quality and innovation increases, thus raising the bar ever higher in this exclusive contest.


This year we have several new categories, including Green/Sustainable and High-Performance homes. So get those entries ready!


All materials submitted to Builder's Choice become the property of Builder and will not be returned. Keep a copy of all entry materials for your records. Do not send original photography. Builder/Hanley Wood retains the right to consider non-winning entries for future publication.
