  • About the Leonardo Awards

  • SMPS Los Angeles, now in its 35th year as a chapter, is excited to host this year’s Leonardo Awards Program on May 17, 2018. A long-standing tradition that was started in 1981, the evening is dedicated to celebrating the industry’s brightest stars; individuals whose achievements within the greater A/E/C community shine like a shooting star in the night sky.

    The event’s namesake honor, the coveted Leonardo Award, has been bestowed in the past to individuals who embody the character and spirit of the renowned Leonardo da Vinci, a true Renaissance man who was accomplished as a painter, sculptor, inventor, and writer. As da Vinci was considered a visionary amongst his peers, so are Leonardo Award recipients.

    Selection Process in a Nutshell

    The 2018 Leonardo Award recipient will be selected through an open call process. In other words, we are extending the Call for Nominations to the community at-large, offering the opportunity for both self-generated and peer-generated nominations. These nominations will be vetted by the Leonardo Jury, which is comprised of a diverse cross-section of professionals within the industry, and they will create a short-list of nominees who will then be invited to submit a detailed Statement of Accomplishment. We hope this “RFQ to RFP” process will entice greater interest and diversity in our pool of potential Leonardo candidates.

    What is the Award Based On?

    All Leonardo Award honorees clearly demonstrate excellence and achievement in:

    Transforming their work environment;
    Being a contribution through volunteerism;
    Commitment to continued education and learning; and
    Improving the practice of professional services marketing for the good of the A/E/C community, and the design and construction industry as a whole.
