The Ernest Wiemann Top Job Awards Competition is an annual contest that recognizes outstanding work in the ornamental and miscellaneous metals industry.

To win an award, entrants must submit photos and a description of their work. The material is then publicly displayed in a gallery where NOMMA member firms are given the opportunity to vote. Winning a Top Job award has special meaning, since it represents the “voice of approval” from industry peers.

NOMMA, headquartered in Forest Park, GA, is the trade association for the metals industry. Products produced by NOMMA members range from railings to driveway gates and include sculpture to light structural steel.
