KANSAS CITY, MO, SEPT 5, 2019 -- Entries are now being accepted for Tnemec’s 2019 Tank of the Year competition, announced Randy Moore, Director of Sales – Agency Development & Industry Affairs. All tank styles are eligible and the deadline for nominating projects is Tuesday, Oct. 1.

“We look forward to another great year of recognizing the creative and innovative uses of Tnemec coatings on water storage tanks,” Moore 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.”

Nominations can be submitted electronically by visiting Once the deadline has passed, photographs of all nominated water tanks will be posted on the contest website, available Oct. 7-18, 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 Tank of the Year contest will be announced Friday, Oct. 25.

Last year’s winning tanks are located in Katy, Texas. In 2018, the City of Katy completed two water tanks with almost identical eye-catching murals, both colorful depictions of geese flying through a bright blue skyline and the city’s name in oversized red letters.

“To help keep these tanks shining for years to come, an advanced fluoropolymer coating system, featuring Series 700 HydroFlon, was selected to provide the exterior design with unprecedented color and gloss retention,” Moore observed. “HydroFlon limits maintenance and extends the service life of water storage tanks, providing one of the most sustainable coating options for tank exteriors.”

During the 2018 competition, 273 tanks were officially nominated for the contest. The public cast a total of more than 30,000 online votes.

“The Tank of the Year competition has gained popularity in the industry since its inception in 2006,” Moore added. “Since then, the competition has grown each year to include more municipalities, engineers and applicators than we ever imagined.”
