In association with Think Brick Australia, the CMAA is proud to present two Awards for innovative use of masonry in architecture – the Kevin Borland Masonry Award and the Bruce Mackenzie Landscape Award. These awards are part of the Think Brick Awards, Australia’s richest design awards, and offer a cash prize of $10,000 per category to reward the best architectural designs in concrete masonry.

The biennial Golden Trowel Competition is Australia’s only team blocklaying competition to encourage excellence among apprentices while recognising the valuable skills of young people in a skill-shortage trade.
