FCI's eighth annual Installation Awards is now open for voting until Wednesday, September 1.

The FCI Installation Awards honor the most creative installers and interesting installations in a range of flooring categories, in both residential and commercial settings. We ask contestants—your industry peers—to not only share what makes their installations special, but what challenges they encountered along the way and what they learned from these projects.

Our hope is to not only give our readers some inspiration and ideas of their own when reviewing the winning projects, but to also inspire those considering a career in the flooring installation industry.

“These projects aren’t just wowing our editors and your peers, they are also inspiring those looking at our industry from the outside, and this is important because as we progress as an industry, we can’t ignore the need to attract and foster the next generation of installers that we will entrust to continue pushing us forward with their talent, skill and ambition,” said Jon Namba, FCI’s editorial director.
