Product Innovations Submissions Period Is Closed

April 29, 2020

Open to interiors+sources in 2020, this competitive awards program is for manufacturers of interiors products related to commercial buildings.

Thanks for your interest! The submission period is now closed. We will post the results soon. 


This competitive awards program is for manufacturers of interiors products related to commercial buildings.


Not submitting the required information could disqualify you.

Who: Interiors vendors who have products relevant to commercial facilities.

Categories: Lighting, Seating, Furniture Systems, Technology Support, Flooring, Acoustics, Materials, Walls and Partitions

  • Items must support end users in commercial and institutional settings, including education, corporate, healthcare, hospitality, government and retail.

Ineligible: Commercial products must be available to buyers by the end of 2020. Residential products and and individual product winners from 2018 and 2019 are not eligible.


Finalists are selected based on their relevance to facility owners/managers and end users.

Due to the current COVID-19 situation, we need to adjust the judging scope. Each entry is judged by our editorial staff based on your submission materials (questionnaire answers, press release and photography). We will not be scheduling a virtual meeting with each finalist. However, any finalist who wants to send a product video is welcome to do so and it will be added to the online article.

Finalist Notification: TBD


We will name winners at the Editors’ Choice, Grand Prize and Merit Award levels. (The three Editors’ Choice winners are drawn from the pool of Grand Prize winners.) Here is what each receives:

  • Coverage in the September/October issue of both BUILDINGS and the October issue of interiors+sources in online and print formats. This special feature will be promoted on our homepage, in the BUILDINGS Bulletin and i+s insider e-newsletters, and across our social media platforms.

  • An individual online product listing with both BUILDINGS and interiors+sources. Both offer a valuable digital catalog of solutions.

  • Marketing materials, including an awards plaque, complimentary issues, press releases, graphics and backlinks.

  • Grand Prize and Editors’ Choice winners will receive an individual social post. Merit Award winners will receive a social post included with other category winners.

  • Editor’s Choice winners will also receive:

    • A five-minute express listen podcast

    • Inclusion in a separate article highlighting the three Editor’s Choice products

    • Inclusion in the BUILDINGS Bulletin and i+s insider e-newsletters separate from the Product Innovations feature

    • One additional individual mention on social media

    • A prime spot in the September/October issue of BUILDINGS and the October issue of interiors+sources

    • Featured placement on the buildings.com and interiorsandsources.com homepages for one week

This is a competitive awards program—submission does not guarantee selection. Your company may submit multiple products, but only one may be selected per category.

If your product is not selected, it does not move forward in the competition and will not be included in the Product Innovations feature. Entries that do not win will be considered for placement in a future issue in the Products section of 
BUILDINGS and/or the Sources section of interiors+sources.

Editors reserve the right to revise all product descriptions.
