Dallas Market Center and ART, the creative home furnishings network, have announced that nominations are officially open for the 32nd ARTS Awards. The Awards will return to their usual schedule during the January 2022 Total Home & Gift Market after a one-year staging of the HEARTS Awards honoring pandemic heroes. The ARTS Awards is the premier international awards program dedicated to home industry excellence and achievement.
“We’re thrilled to reunite the industry and to return to our exciting celebration of hard work and creativity,” said Cindy Morris, President and CEO of Dallas Market Center. Added Sharon Davis, Executive Director of ART: “We welcome nominations from across the industry in order to honor leaders and innovators. We also look forward to joining together again in person and in support of the incredible accomplishments by individuals and companies.”
The ARTS Awards process begins with the nomination of retailers, manufacturers, designers, and sales representatives. Nominations are received online at dallasmarketcenter.com/ArtsAwards/nominations/ through June 28, 2021.
After nominations are received, a nomination committee of industry peers evaluates the entries and determines finalists. A separate judging panel then convenes in the fall to review and score finalists’ materials. Winners will be announced during a gala event on Friday, January 7, 2022. Neither membership in ART nor representation at Dallas Market Center is necessary to nominate or to be a nominee.
The 32nd ARTS Awards categories are:
- Sales Representative
