Submissions are now open for the 2024 edition of the North American Copper in Architecture Awards (NACIA). Presented by the Copper Development Association (CDA), the NACIA awards celebrate projects that feature architectural copper and copper alloys, including roof systems, façades, and wall systems, as well as custom-fabricated elements. Entries are accepted from across Canada and the United States.

Architects, engineers, and contractors may submit architectural projects by April 22, 2024. Projects of any size and type are eligible, as long as they feature architectural elements of copper, brass, or bronze; are located in the United States or Canada; and were completed within the past three years.

Entries should include a project description and high-resolution photos of the finished building. There is no cost to submit.

“The enduring beauty, versatility, and long life of copper continue to make it a leading material for exterior and interior applications,” said Larry Peters, CDA’s project manager and architectural specialist. “For over 15 years, the NACIA awards program has honoured excellence in copper design and craftsmanship.”


Judges will evaluate projects on the integration of copper alloys into the overall building, excellence in innovation and/or restoration, and sustainable building strategies. Winning projects will receive an award, extensive exposure in architectural and construction magazines and other media, and recognition in CDA’s educational and industry outreach programs.

Last year’s winners included outstanding examples of both restoration work and new construction, including striking academic buildings in Toronto, as well as an iconic cathedral in New York City and innovative residences in both Colorado and Virginia.
