VISION Design and Workroom Competition Awards Seek Applicants

St. Paul, MN – The annual VISION Design and Workroom Competition Awards, sponsored by Kirsch, are now accepting applications. Interior designers, workroom owners, and other window fashion professionals are encouraged to send their best work for consideration between now and November 15.

The VISION Design and Workroom Competition Awards were founded to recognize artisans in the window fashion industry and to validate and celebrate the amazing work they do every day. Awards are given in more than a dozen categories, including Commercial Window Fashions, Top Treatments, Combination Treatments, Soft Shades, Motorized Treatments, and Upholstery/Slipcovers. Winners receive a trophy during a formal awards ceremony, which will take place at the International Window Coverings Expo (IWCE), March 25 to 27, in Charlotte.

In addition to these categories, two designers will receive the competition’s top honors, Workroom of the Year and the Award of Excellence. Winners receive a full design pass to IWCE as well as a $1,000 scholarship to use as an Education Scholarship for classes and seminars at the following year’s expo and/or for Window Fashion Certified Professional classes.

Window Fashion VISION, the premier trade magazine for the window coverings industry, sponsors the annual awards. All winning designs, the designer’s name, and photo, and a brief description of the project will be published in the magazine’s May/June or July/August edition.

To enter, applicants must submit a brief online application and several pictures of their project. Designers may enter in as many categories as desired. There is a $50 fee per entry.
