31st Annual ARTS Award Nomination

J. Banks Design Group’s President and Founder, Joni Vanderslice, has been nominated for a 31st annual ARTS Award in the category of Interior Design. Dallas Market Center and Accessories Resource Team (ART), the creative home furnishings network, released the full list of finalists last week for the 31st Annual ARTS Awards taking place on Friday, Jan. 10, 2020. “We are pleased to present such an impressive slate of finalists,” says Sharon Davis, executive director of ART. “Thank you to everyone who took the time to nominate a deserving company or individual, and we look forward to honoring and celebrating all of them.”

The ARTS Awards, presented each January during the Dallas Total Home & Gift Market, is the premier awards program in the U.S. honoring top manufacturers, retailers, designers, and sales representatives in the home industry. Each finalist will submit a creative digital presentation to a panel of independent judges. In November, the judges will convene in Dallas for two days to review each individual or company submission. Once judging is complete, an independent accounting firm tabulates the scores and secures them until the winners are announced at the ARTS Awards gala.

“Congratulations to all of the 31st Annual ARTS Awards finalists,” says Cindy Morris, President and CEO of Dallas Market Center. “These carefully selected finalists represent the utmost creativity, originality and craftsmanship, and we applaud their dedication to our industry. We look forward to celebrating their accomplishments in January.”

Joni is so honored to have been nominated and sharing our portfolio with the judges.  We are looking forward to the awards gala in Dallas in January!
