Cartersville, GA, Jan. 7, 2013 -- For the seventh consecutive year, the Shaw Contract Group will hold its Design Is…Award competition.
The contest asks entrants to define design through the challenges, process and results of their projects.
This year, a market award will be introduced to the program. Market winners will move on to the global award program and People’s Choice voting later in the year.
“This year’s addition of the market awards will allow for a broader range of exceptional projects to be recognized,” says John Stephens, vice president of marketing for Shaw Contract Group.
"Showcasing these projects will benefit all markets within the commercial interiors industry by recognizing excellence in design beyond beautiful spaces. We will honor projects that achieve both human and business goals in ways that represent the best practices in global design."
Winning firms receive $2,000 to donate to the school or organization of their choice.
Since 2006, Shaw Contract Group had donated over $80,000 through the Design Is…Award to support design education and social responsibility, all in the name of the winning firms.
