Finalists announced for 28th Annual ARTS Awards

Dallas Market Center, co-founder and producer of the ARTS Awards, and ART, the creative home furnishings network, has announced the finalists for the 28th annual ARTS Awards

The ARTS Awards, presented each January during the Dallas Total Home & Gift Market, honors top manufacturers, retailers, designers and sales representatives. The 28th annual ARTS winners will be revealed during a gala event on Friday, Jan. 20, 2017.

“We are both thrilled and grateful to be able to recognise those who have exemplified leadership, dedication and ingenuity in our industry over the past year,” Cindy Morris, president and CEO of Dallas Market Center, said. “We congratulate all of the finalists and look forward to a wonder evening at the ARTS Awards gala in January.”

“These 28th ARTS Awards finalists are very deserving of the recognition. I’m very excited to see many new competitors in this year’s group of finalists,” Sharon Davis, executive director of ART, said. “I look forward to working with all of the companies and individuals nominated this year."

The finalists each submit a creative 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.
