Nominate a Property for a 2017 Orchid Award

Keep Knoxville Beautiful is now accepting nominations from the public for its beautification awards, the Orchids. Since 1979, Keep Knoxville Beautiful has presented Orchid Awards to Knoxville and Knox County buildings and outdoor spaces that beautify and elevate the local landscape.

Anyone can nominate a property using the form below for any of the following six categories:

  • New Architecture
  • Redesign/Reuse
  • Restaurant/Cafe/Bar/Brewery
  • Outdoor Space (Parks, Patios, Rooftop Gardens, Neighborhoods, etc.)
  • Public Art (Murals, Sculptures, Signage, etc.)
  • Environmental Stewardship (Properties that incorporate renewable materials, energy efficiency, LEED certification and/or other sustainable building practices)

Private residences are not considered for this award. Properties that received an Orchid Award since 2007 are ineligible except in cases of major renovations. (See list of past winners). Nominations are due by January 5, 2017 (deadline was extended).

We are honored to have the East Tennessee Community Design Center serve as judges of the dozens of award nominations. Keep Knoxville Beautiful will announce the winners of the beautification awards at the annual 2017 Orchids Awards Dinner.
