MASA’s Second Annual Canopy Creativity Contest!

The Canopy Creativity Contest by MASA Architectural Canopies is back for its second year. This year’s theme is “Your VISION” – as we are looking for the most creative daylighting style canopy designs. To qualify, all entries must include an element of glass, polycarbonate (G7), 3Form, or another transparent/translucent material. You may enter as many designs as you wish.

As always, this is purely a contest that seeks to recognize the hard work and amazing ideas from our friends in the design world. MASA does not sell pre-made canopies and will not profit from any designer’s submission.

Awards will be given in two categories: wall-mounted design, freestanding design. Will you be the WILD CARD? Winners will have their designs posted on MASA’s website and social media pages with links to the winning firms’ sites. The top design in each category will also become a MASA SPECIAL EDITION. If any customer wants a canopy built based on a winning design, the designer’s name will go on the final product. For example: firm XYZ’s winning design becomes the “XYZ Edition”. In addition, the MASA SPECIAL EDITION sale will come along with a set monetary donation to the designer’s designation. Details to follow.

Show us your best and brightest VISION. Email entries to All entries must be received by August 31.
