WIA Annual Craftsmanship Awards

Submit your entry for the 2019 Craftsmanship Awards!

Members can participate as both a contender and a judge!

Remember you can’t be recognized if you don’t enter! Press releases with recipient information and photographs are sent to multiple national magazines for publishing. Wouldn’t it be great for your future customers to see your name in a national magazine? This is a great way to promote the professional installer as well as the wallcovering industry.

Entries will require project information, photos and additional detail.
