DMC and ART open nominations for ARTS Awards

Dallas Market Center (DMC) and ART announced that the nominations are now open for the 33rd ARTS Awards, which will take place during the January 2023 Total Home & Gift Market.

“Nominations are the first step toward an exciting event honoring the best in the business,” said Cindy Morris, president and CEO of DMC. “Please help us recognize individuals and companies from across the country and internationally. We have seen incredible innovation, creativity, and leadership over the last year that deserve to be recognized,” added Sharon Davis, executive director of ART.

The Process

The ARTS Awards process begins with the nomination of retailers, manufacturers, designers, and sales representatives. Nominations are received online at through June 28, 2022.

After nominations are received, a nomination committee of industry peers evaluates the entries and determines finalists. A separate judging panel then convenes in the fall to review and score finalists’ materials. Winners will be announced during a gala event on Friday, Jan. 6, 2023. Neither membership in ART nor representation at DMC is necessary to nominate or to be a nominee.
