The third edition of the Jawor-Parquet Design Awards competition is underway

The call for entries for the Jawor-Parkiet Design Awards is still ongoing until April 30. Those wishing to take part in the competition have just three weeks to prepare a visualization or present a completed project using Jawor-Parkiet wood floors. Winners can look forward to valuable financial prizes and an extraordinary design-inspired journey.

The competition is an industry event and is always very popular. In the two previous editions it attracted more than 300 participants, who submitted a total of 1,100 works. As every year, it is open to architecture professionals and students, as well as young interior designers and architectural studios.

chances of winning increased

On the occasion of the 30th anniversary, Jawor-Parquet introduced a new category - realizations. Thanks to this, contestants can prepare competition works using flooring textures, but also present already completed investments in which the organizer's products were used.

A wide range of interior designers and architects have been working with the Jawor-Parquet brand for years. Since every anniversary is an opportunity to summarize and reflect, we wanted to give architects the opportunity to present not only their artistic visions, but also projects already implemented," says Grzegorz Sadowski, director of Marketing and Sales Network Development at Jawor-Parkiet.

The works will undergo an initial formal evaluation, after which their substantive and aesthetic value will be assessed by a jury. In the third edition of the competition, the jury will include, in addition to representatives of the organizer, Tomasz Pągowski - designer and charismatic host of TV programs such as Projekt LOKALny, Remont w 48H, Bitwa o Dom (TVN).

The submitted works will be judged in terms of the correct application of the Jawor-Parquet product, such as the proper representation of its color or maintenance of proportions, but above all the presented design, taking into account: the utility and visual values, innovation and functionality.

We hope that the 3rd edition of the Jawor-Parquet Design Awards competition, like the previous ones, will result in great interest and high quality of the submitted works. This is a very valuable time for us, when we have the opportunity to learn about the ideas, but also the needs of designers related to our products," says Janusz Gawinski, general director of Jawor-Parkiet.

a journey to the corners of art and design

The culmination of the previous two editions of the competition were trips to Milanand the Italian region of Emilia-Romagna, famous for its best cuisine and wines. Past highlights have included a visit to the Ferrari Museum of Modena, participation in the 2019 Made Expo, but also a tour of the factory of the iconic Parmigiano Reggiano cheese, wine testing overlooking the sunny vineyards and a night of fun at the famous Just Cavalli Milano club.

In this year's edition, the authors of the best projects will receive cash prizes of: PLN 8,000, PLN 4,000 and PLN 2,000. The jury will also award two honorable mentions in each of the two categories. A total of seven winners of the competition will be invited to participate in an inspiring journey

Despite the current limitations, we believe that this year, too, we will go with the winners on a journey in the footsteps of design. In our opinion, nothing inspires, motivates and opens us to the world as much as traveling," adds Janusz Gawinski.

More information about the contest and the regulations are available on the organizer's website.
