The 2021 Chicago's Finest Painted Ladies & Her Court competition, sponsored by the Bloomingdale-based Chicago Paint and Coatings Association, has announced this year's winners.

Three Elgin homeowners earned honors for their paint projects, including grand-prize winners Adam and Elizabeth Long.

 

This popular competition, now in its 36th year, concluded on Labor Day with nine-winning homes and businesses throughout the suburbs, Chicago and Northwest Indiana. The style, size or age of the property is not a factor in selecting the winners, but rather the beauty and craftsmanship of the paint application, and how well it complements the structure of the building and its surrounding neighborhood, organizers said.

To commemorate their achievement, winners will be honored at a special awards dinner hosted by the Chicago Paint and Coatings Association on Thursday, Nov. 4, at Maggiano's restaurant in Schaumburg.

Based on the wide range of beautiful entries, it underscores the fact that paint and coatings are the most affordable ways to improve and accent a home or business appearance, the judging committee said in a news release.
