Jacques Benedict Awards

Entries are now open for the 2020 Jacques Benedict Awards. View submission information HERE. The deadline for submissions is July 10, 2020.

The ICAA Rocky Mountain Chapter is pleased to introduce the Jacques Benedict Awards for 2020.

Previously known as the Robert & Judi Newman Awards, the Jacques Benedict Awards will continue to biennially celebrate excellence in classical & traditional design in our region. ICAA Award Programs across the country look to the past to honor professionals who exemplify the advancement of the classical vernacular in the various regions.

The ICAA Rocky Mountain Chapter Awards are named IN HONOR OF JACQUES BENEDICT (1879-1947), the esteemed early 20th Century Denver architect, graduate of the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris, who produced nearly 80 Beaux Arts style buildings in the Rocky Mountain region. The classical proportions, restrained ornamentation and unmatched beauty of Benedict’s designs continue to serve as an enduring source of delight and inspiration.

The Jacques Benedict Awards recognize today’s contemporary architects, interior designers, builders, craftsman, artisans, students and patrons whose work displays the same expression of legacy, creativity and excellence in the classical tradition.
