Global retail association in call for entries for three awards programs

Shop! Environments Association is now accepting for three awards programs: Shop! Design Awards, Shop! OMA Awards and Shop! Global Awards.

The industry association, which is dedicated to enhancing retail environments and experiences, will recognize all the award winners during a gala celebration on June 26 in Chicago, at GlobalShop 2019. (The annual event has moved to June this year.) The Shop! Awards include the 60-year-old OMA Awards and the Design Awards, which is in its 47th year.

The Shop! Awards encompass three premier awards competitions that honor the best concepts and designs among retail and restaurant environments as well as the most innovative and effective in-store and point-of-purchase displays from around the world. Here are the details on the three award programs:

• Shop! OMA Awards includes the coveted Display of the Year along with Budget and Creative awards. Winning displays will be recognized with Gold, Silver or Bronze awards. The OMA Contest is open to all producers, suppliers and producers of point-of-purchase materials, consumer products and services companies and retailers. Enter at:

• Shop! Design Awards recognize excellence in retail design. Entries are judged on design, originality in the use of space and materials, and quality of concept execution. Retailers, design firms, architects, manufacturers, and suppliers can enter at:

• Shop! Global Awards celebrate the "best of the best" in both store design and point-of-purchase. Global Award winners are selected from previous Gold winners in all categories from around the world, crowning them best in international class. Any 2018 Gold winner can enter at

Due to the change in timing for GlobalShop, the 2019 awards entries deadline has been moved to Feb. 15 for the early bird discount and March 15 as final day to enter.

“Winning a Design Award, OMA Award or Global Award is a great way for retailers, brands, designers, and suppliers to enjoy industry recognition among their peers and bring added prestige to the outstanding work they do," said Todd Dittman, Shop! executive director. "With so many opportunities to win -- from small counter displays through 25,000-plus sq. ft. store designs -- we encourage anyone with a product display or store design to take advantage of this opportunity to showcase their work to the industry."
