Items must be compatible with commercial settings, including education, corporate, healthcare, hospitality, government, and retail.

Products can enhance building management through areas such as energy efficiency, water conservation, space optimization, labor costs, occupant health, liability, or durability.

Residential, contractor, and construction-related products are not applicable to our audience. Individual product winners from 2017 and 2016 are also not eligible. Products must be available in the U.S. and Canada.
Entry Materials A press release or brochure – A standard press release is suitable. Submitters can elaborate on the product’s cost savings in an additional field on the entry form.

High-resolution images (up to five) – A mix of standard and application photos is best so judges can visualize how the product is used. Company or product logos are suitable if a photo isn't available. Only one will be selected for publication.

High-resolution images must be 300dpi (at least 250KB) and can be vertical or horizontal shots. We accept TIFF, JPG, or EPS files. Files smaller than 150KB are unusable and will be rejected.

Judging Winners are selected by our editorial staff based on their relevance to commercial building management and potential for cost savings.

This is a competitive awards program – submission does not guarantee selection. Your company may submit multiple products, but only one may be chosen as a winner.

Entries that do not win for Money-Saving Products will be considered for placement in a future Products Section.
Award Coverage Money-Saving Products is a special feature in our June 2018 issue. Your product description will be approximately 80 words and includes an image.

The online feature will be promoted on our homepage, in our June 12 BUILDINGS Bulletin e-newsletter, and across our social media platforms (Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn).

Your product will be added to our Online Products, a digital catalog of solutions for facility managers.
PR Support Winners receive complimentary issues of the magazine + links to the online feature and their individual product page. They will also have access to the Money-Saving Product logo and a press release for customization.
