Atlanta -The fifth edition of Icon Honors has opened its 2014 call for entries. Submissions will be accepted through March 14, 2014.
Awarded each year during the Atlanta International Gift & Home Furnishings Market in July, Icon Honors is inviting retailers, manufacturers, sales agencies and service providers to compete for the annual award, which recognizes the highest levels of professional and personal achievement in the gift and home industries.
Categories open to submissions and nominations in 2014 are expanding to include the addition of Branding-which joins the Innovation (Technology, Product and Packaging), Contribution (Community and Industry Influence) and Achievement- and offers entrants a new recognition celebrating pure marketing/branding achievement in three divisions: Brand Identity Development/Brand Launch; Brand Identity Development/Brand Continuity; and Brand Identity Development/Rebranding.
In addition to the regular honorees, Icon Honors also awards a Lifetime Achievement Honor, AmericasMart Medal of Excellence Honor and the GHTA/Gift For Life Honor of Excellence. Icon Honors is produced and staged by AmericasMart Atlanta in partnership with the Gift & Home Trade Association (GHTA) and Progressive Business Media, and in affiliation with Gift For Life. Honors submissions and nominations are made exclusively online.
The 2014 Icon Honors ceremony is scheduled for Thursday, July 10 in Atlanta.
