HIGH POINT, N.C. -- The home furnishings industry's annual showcase for excellence in showroom design now has a new award. As part of this year's fashion campaign, the High Point Market's Showroom Design Competition is adding a new Fashion Focus Award to its line-up of honors, including Best of Market and People's Choice awards.
In its fifth year, the Showroom Design Competition gives High Point Market exhibitors the opportunity to earn industry-wide recognition for outstanding display ideas, and for retailers and designer to get new ideas and inspiration for their stores and clients' homes.
The Best of Market Award is selected by a panel of judges and honors the showroom that best exemplifies creative and compelling display. The judges for this Market are Newell Turner, editor in chief of House Beautiful; Mark McMenamin, senior editor of Interior Design, and interior designer Tobi Fairley.
The judges also will select the winner of the Fashion Focus Award, which will go to the exhibitor who most creatively uses fashion elements in its showroom display. For both of those awards, exhibitors are invited to upload photos of their showrooms on their exhibitor listing page.
For the People's Choice Award, all market-goers will be invited to vote for their favorite showroom design via Twitter or text messaging. Judging criteria is left to the discretion of individual Market attendees.

The awards will be announced on Monday, Oct. 15, at 8:45 a.m., just before the Market Press Breakfast in the High Point Theatre. Winning entrants in each category will be presented with a crystal trophy cup for display in their showroom.
