Historic Wilmington Foundation’s annual Preservation Awards honor those doing exemplary work on old buildings in Pender, Brunswick and New Hanover counties. It’s a time to celebrate the very special people enacting our mission through preservation efforts in the following four categories:

1. Adaptive Reuse
2. Rehabilitation
3. Appropriate New Construction
4. Restoration
Applications are due June 1, 2020.

Although we ordinarily celebrate these amazing rehabbers and stewards in May as part of Preservation Month, we’ll gather for the 2020 awards ceremony in July.
The exact date will be announced on this page as soon as it is scheduled.

Please download and complete the nomination form below. Remember to include before and after images of the project digitally formatted as jpg, png or pdf only. Completed forms and digital images may be submitted by emailing rutledge@historicwilmington.org, or completed nomination forms may be mailed to:
