NewYorkHouseMagazine.com prides itself on bringing its readers the newest products and ideas that support a sustainable and green lifestyle. The categories include but are not limited to Furniture (Case Goods, Upholstery and Indoor/Outdoor Casual Furniture), Lighting (Fixtures, Bulbs and Portable Lamps), Flooring, Floor Coverings, Bedding (Mattresses and Textiles), Kitchen and Household Appliances (Dishwashers, Ranges/Ovens and Refrigerators, Water Heaters, Air Purifiers, etc.), Window Treatments (Hard and Soft), Building Materials (Roofing, Insulation, etc.), Interior Finishes (Sealants, Wallpaper, Paint, etc.) and Plumbing Fixtures.
Winners will be spotlighted in extensive coverage on NewYorkHouseMagazine.com and will also be included in weekly email blasts. Nancy Meyer, editor of New York House Magazine says “The publicity from winning this competition can not only promote products but more than anything IGDASM can educate both consumers and professionals about the positive impact sustainable products can have on our world.”
The panel of independent judges will evaluate each entry based on these criteria: The product must have a defining green or sustainable attribute (in design, material, increased energy efficiency, reduced embodied energy, etc…) and/or be made in a sustainable way, and finally the product must be new, but available to consumers (on the market less than 2 years). The judges focus on the product’s green and sustainable design and manufacturing, innovation and overall aesthetics, and they want to see companies making an effort to increase awareness about being environmentally conscious.
The deadline is July 15, 2011. Along with having a green product you must send in a 250-word description of your product, up to five digital images of the product, and a $50 entry fee.
If you are a green designer or manufacturer and want to share your work with NewYorkHouseMagazine.com submit an application to this year’s 3rd Annual Innovation Green Design AwardsSM competition by July 15th at: NewYorkHouseMagazine.com/
