The title itself is the prize to be won but the award winner may use it for his advertising purposes for the entire year
The Austrian Stonemasons’ Design Prize is awarded yearly for innovative design ideas in natural stone and for quality craftsmanship. All freelance Austrian stonemasons with a project in interior or exterior as well as artistic design are eligible. A maximum of 12 prizes are awarded each year – all are equal.
The award winners are honored with a certificate which the stonemason or his company may use for advertising purposes for the duration of one year. The competition is organized by the stonemasons’ center (Steinzentrum) Hallein.
