KANSAS CITY, MO – Entries are now being accepted for Tnemec’s 2016 Tank of the Year competition, announced Doug Hansen, Director of Sales, Water Tank Market. All tank styles are eligible, and the deadline for nominating projects is Oct. 3.

“We look forward to another great year of recognizing the aesthetic, creative and innovative uses of Tnemec coatings on water storage tanks,” Hansen explained. “It’s amazing how the contest has grown during the past decade. It has become a great way to showcase what’s going on in the water tank industry. Fabricators, contractors and owners can take pride in being associated with projects that are nominated for Tank of the Year.”

Nominations can be submitted electronically by visiting www.tnemec.com/tankoftheyear. Photos must accompany all nomination forms. Once the deadline has passed, photographs of all nominated water tanks will be posted on the contest website, available Oct. 4-14, where the general public can vote for the People’s Choice.

The People’s Choice will automatically be considered among 11 other committee-determined runners-up for the official Tank of the Year crown. A committee of water tank enthusiasts will judge these finalists based on artistic value, significance of the tank to the surrounding community and challenges encountered during the project. The overall winner of the 2016 Tank of the Year contest will be announced Friday, Oct. 21.
