2015 Ammann Awards

November is National Historic Bridge month, and for the fifth time since its launch in 2011, The Bridgehunter's Chronicles is presenting the Othmar H. Ammann Awards in categories ranging from Best Photo, to Lifetime Achievement, to Best Example of a Preserve Historic Bridge to even a region with a very high number of HBs that exist. Again as in the past, the awards will be given to US bridges as well as those on the international scale. To learn more on how to submit your entries, please click on the link below: https://bridgehunterschronicles.wordpress.com/the-othmar-h-a... Entries will be taken between now and 1 December with voting to commence afterwards.

In addition, to commemorate the Chronicles' five-year anniversary, a special category will be added in the voting mix: The Top Five Historic Bridges one should see and The Top Five Places with a large number of historic bridges. These will be based on the top three bridge candidates that had been entered in the Ammann Awards per year since its launch in 2011. They will be added to the voting ballot.

For further questions or to submit your entry for the Ammann Awards, please contact Jason Smith either by using the contact form below:
