Welcome to the TOBY Awards

Welcome to BOMA International's TOBY Awards online application.

The Outstanding Building of the Year (TOBY) Awards are the most prestigious and comprehensive programs of their kind in the commercial real estate industry recognizing quality in buildings and rewarding excellence in building management.

During the competitions, all facets of a building's operations are thoroughly evaluated. Buildings are judged on everything from community involvement and site management to environmental and "green" policies and procedures.


The competition consists of three levels. The competition begins at the BOMA local association level, winning entries advance from there to the regional level and, finally, regional winners advance to the international level. The international TOBY Awards will be presented at the BOMA International Conference in San Antonio, TX June 26, 2018.

Celebrate the highest honors the commercial real estate industry can bestow-enter your building today.


Please contact your local association concerning local entry fees and deadlines. A $25 data-submission will be collected to utilize the online system.


A total of $300 in entry fees will be paid to BOMA International for each submission entering the regional competition. These fees will be collected during the online submission process. Fees are broken down as follows:

  • A $25 data-submission fee will be collected for each building added to the online system. Buildings may be added regardless of whether they have won at the local level or not. Adding a building does not enter that building in the regional or international competitions.
  • A $275 entry fee must be paid in order to submit a building for consideration in the regional and international competitions.

An additional regional competition fee may apply. If applicable the regional competition fee will be collected online along with the $275 entry fee above


All entries must be submitted and fees received prior to your region's submission deadline in order to compete.


Regional winners will be submitted by each region to BOMA International
by April 6, 2018.

"Trammell Crow Company encourages all of its associates to rise above the norm by participation in the TOBY competition. The enhanced awareness of the property and the heightened sense of camaraderie among staff are a great benefit to the building, its owners and tenants. Winning on any level is an added bonus-winning the international competition is a lasting thrill shared by all involved."
