Finalists announced for 27th annual ARTS Awards
Dallas Market Center and ART, the creative home furnishings network, announced Thursday, Sept. 10, the 27th annual ARTS Awards finalists.
The ARTS Awards, presented each January during the Dallas Total Home & Gift Market, honors top manufacturers, retailers, designers and sales representatives. The 27th annual ARTS winners in 26 categories will be revealed during a gala event on Friday, Jan. 22, 2016.
“This year’s finalists exemplify the hard work and commitment that inspires the entire home furnishings community,” Cindy Morris, CEO of Dallas Market Center said. “We congratulate all the finalists and look forward to an exciting evening at the awards gala in January.”
The finalists each submit a streamlined digital presentation to a panel of distinguished judges. Digital submissions vary based on category and may consist of product development, marketing, merchandising or company differentiation examples. In November, the judges will convene in Dallas for two days to review each individual or company submission. Once all components of judging are complete, a designated accounting firm will tabulate and secure the scores until the winners are announced for the first time at the ARTS Awards gala.
The annual ARTS Awards are sponsored by enLIGHTenment, FANDECK, Gifts & Decorative Accessories, Giftware News, HFN, Home Accents Today, Home Fashion Forecast, Home & Textiles Today, Residential Lighting, Sustainable Furnishings Council and Lyon Credit Services.
