Submissions are being accepted for the 2016 Carpet Design Awards until Nov. 3.

According to officials, prizes will be awarded in eight categories, and winners will be announced at Domotex on Sunday, Jan 17. at the Innovations@Domotex area in Hall 17.

“This prestigious international competition offers Domotex exhibitors a fantastic opportunity to make an even bigger impact at the show,” said Ben Evans, editor at Hali Publications. “Domotex is the premier global showcase for the latest developments in carpet design. Many new trends in carpets and rugs and interior furnishing can be traced back to Hannover, and they just take off from there. At the Carpet Design Awards there are always a host of new designs and production techniques to be discovered.”

There is no charge for entering the competition, and each entrant can submit up to three designs per category. The competition is open to registered Domotex exhibitors only, with the one exception of the category “Best Studio Artist Design,” which is also open to non-exhibitors.
