ART presents the annual ARTS Awards program
The ARTS Awards is a peer nominated program with ballots submitted online from June-July. Anyone in the home accents industry can participate and submit multiple ballots to nominate in several categories. Nominees and finalists are not required to exhibit inDallas or belong to ART.
Finalists are announced in August and submissions for judging are due in November. The presentation submissions are 100% digital. The judges independently review and score each submission on criteria established by the ARTS Awards committee. The 5 judges represent various industry backgrounds and a 6th judge representing the Sustainable Furnishings Council reviews the manufacturer presentations to determine the Green Award winner. The scores are tallied and the winners in each category and the annual Academy of Achievement are announced in January during the Dallas Total Home & Gift Market.
