Dallas Market Center and ART, the creative home furnishings network, today announced that nominations are officially open for the 30th Annual ARTS Awards.
The ARTS Awards, presented each January during the Dallas Total Home & Gift Market, is the premier international awards program dedicated to home industry excellence and achievement in retailing, manufacturing, design and sales representation. Prominent members of the home industry gather in Dallas each year to celebrate the crème de la crème of leaders and innovators in the industry.
“For three decades, the ARTS Awards has served as a program to recognize the creativity and hard work across all segments of home decor,” says Cindy Morris, President and CEO of Dallas Market Center. “We welcome nominations to create an inspiring and robust list of finalists for the event’s 30th anniversary.”
The ARTS Awards honors home industry leaders and professionals, beginning with the nomination of retailers, manufacturers, designers and sales representatives. Nominations are received online at www.dallasmarketcenter.com now through June 27, 2018.
After nominations are received, a nomination committee of industry peers evaluates the entries and determines finalists. A separate judging panel then convenes in Dallas in the fall to review and score finalists’ materials.
Winners will be announced during a gala event on Friday, Jan. 18, 2019. Neither membership in ART nor representation at Dallas Market Center is necessary to nominate or to be a nominee.
Nominations are being accepted in the following ARTS Awards categories:
- Manufacturer Awards
- Sales Representative
- Designer (Interior and Product)
- Academy of Achievement
Sponsors for the 30th annual ARTS Awards include Designers Today, enLIGHTenment, Furniture Today, Gifts & Decorative Accessories, Giftware News, Home Accents Today, Home Furnishings News, Home Textiles Today, Interior Design Society, Lighting & Decor and Sustainable Furnishings Council.
