The winning designer will receive $5,000 and will have their design used throughout all aspects of the Coverings 2013 marketing campaign.

Each year, the Coverings show features a new look and feel to appeal to all audiences. Last year when the show was in Las Vegas, the creative for the show featured Vegas-themed images such as showgirls, card decks and poker chips. For Coverings 2012, the creative has a colorful “BE” theme – such as “BE Bold. BE Brilliant. BE Bright.” These creative themes and designs have always been created and well-executed by an internal design theme, but for 2013, it’s time to get the upcoming host city involved.

Coverings is asking Atlanta-area design professionals and students to submit their own design idea for Coverings 2013, April 29 to May 2, 2013 in Atlanta, GA. The winning designer will receive $5,000 and will have their design used throughout the Coverings 2013 marketing campaign in advertising, direct mail, email, website graphics, signage and more.

The competition is open only to design professionals and students that reside in the Atlanta, Georgia metropolitan area and entrants must be at least 18 years old to enter.

There is no fee to enter The Art of Coverings Competition, and the deadline is March, 9, 2012. All completed entries will be displayed and judged onsite at Coverings 2012 in April in Orlando and the winning designer will be notified by May 1, 2012.

Don’t miss out on this new – and lucrative – opportunity. If you or someone you know is an Atlanta-area based designer, visit www.coverings.com/ArtOfCoverings for complete rules and entry information.
