Anyone in the lighting industry can nominate a retailer for the SHOWROOM OF THE YEAR Awards, and an individual may submit more than one nomination. Each nomination must encompass a single brick-and-mortar store location. It is important to note that most of the questions on the nomination form require qualitative, open-ended responses. The more detailed and descriptive these responses, the clearer the picture judges will have for each nominee's strengths. All questions are mandatory, but if a question does not apply or you do not know the answer, it is acceptable to indicate that. Individuals who nominate are not identified to the store being nominated. And one nomination is sufficient to be considered for the Awards. However, it is strongly encouraged that your nominee also submit an entry to provide enhanced perspective and store images for judges to consider.
