If you are a retailer with show-stopping windows, there is still time to ‘go for gold’ by entering images of your best window display by next week, Thursday August 12.
Housewares retailers from all around the world are competing for the title of gia Top Window 2021. The international accolade is part of the gia (Global Innovation Awards) programme, which is organised and sponsored by the IHA (International Housewares Association).
Two worldwide winners (one small and one large store – selected by gia’s expert jurors) will win a fabulous trip to Chicago to coincide with The Inspired Home Show (March 5-8 2022).
Each country in the gia programme can put forward three housewares retailers to compete for the fantastic prize. All shortlisted retailers will be part of an international celebration of housewares windows, with global publicity.
If you would like to represent the UK for the 2021 gia Top Window Award, please email Jo Howard, Progressive Housewares’ editor at firstname.lastname@example.org by Thursday August 12, with between one and three images of a particular window display. Progressive Housewares magazine is the exclusive UK gia sponsor.
All photographs need to be digital images, high resolution 300 dpi .tiff or .jpg. Photo dimensions should be approximately 21 x 26 cm.
Please provide a short description (up to 100 words) about the window display, ie what is the idea behind the display? You can also add an optional short summary of any special effects (such as use of specialty lighting, motion, audio, scent, interactive, technology or video if relevant).
All UK housewares retailers – including previous gia UK winners -are very welcome to take part in the gia Top Window contest by Thursday August 12.
