March 15 Deadline To Enter Window Covering Product Awards Competition
| The deadline to enter the annual WCMA Product Awards competition is March 15,
2013. The Window Covering Manufacturers Association (WCMA) announced its call
for entries for the 2013 WCMA Product Awards earlier this winter. Product
submissions will be judged in the following product categories: cellular shades;
drapery hardware; horizontal blinds; motorization; Roman, roller and pleated
shades; shutters; specialty applications and miscellaneous products; verticals and
panel tracks; wood blinds and faux wood blinds.
The window coverings industry's annual awards program honors manufacturers
for their design ingenuity, attention-grabbing styles, and technical advancements of
window covering products and services.
A panel of industry experts will review products for innovation, aesthetic appeal,
creativity, quality, practicality and marketability. The window coverings industry's
marketing and merchandising programs are also eligible to be submitted for
consideration of their execution and achievements.
All manufacturers vie for the 2013 Product of the Year, awarded to one product
for its overall achievement. Manufacturers and suppliers of window covering
products in the United States and Canada are encouraged to submit their products
for consideration for the 2013 WCMA Product Awards.
The 2013 WCMA Product Awards presentation will be held during IWCE /
VISION13 (International Window Coverings Expo) in New Orleans April 19-21, 2013.
IWCE / VISION13, co-located with the Kitchen and Bath Industry Show (KBIS), is the
must-attend international window fashion industry expo.
All product submissions are displayed to all show attendees via photo exhibits
installed on-site at the IWCE / VISION13 trade show and will be posted on the
WCMA Web site throughout the year.
