2013 Housewares Design Awards Finalists Selected

Monday November 26th, 2012 - 10:19AM

NEW YORK— The finalists have been selected for the 2013 Housewares Design Awards.

Five product finalists in each of 12 core awards categories were selected from nearly 300 entries representing Cookware & Bakeware; Countertop Cooking & Beverage Appliances; Countertop Food Prep Appliances; Countertop Kitchenware; Cutlery and Cutting Tools; Floor Care & Cleaning Appliances; Gadgets & Kitchen Tools; Home Environment Appliances; Home Organization, Laundry Care & Non-Electric Cleaning; Home & Outdoor Décor; Personal, Health & Garment Care; and Tableware, Serveware & Beverageware.

“Best in Category” winners for each of the 12 awards categories will be announced during a special Housewares Design Awards presentation ceremony and luncheon. A trio of “Best of the Best” winners— Gold, Silver and Bronze awards— will be selected from the 12 “Best in Category” honorees.

The 2013 Housewares Design Award ceremony will mark the culmination of the 10th-year celebration of the industry’s original and preeminent design competition.

The 2013 Housewares Design Awards ceremony also features the fifth annual Green House Award competition for eco-responsible design. The 2013 Green House Award winner will be selected from among five finalists.

The 2013 Housewares Design Awards luncheon and ceremony is scheduled for January 29, 2013, 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., at the Marriott New York Marquis overlooking New York City’s Times Square. Each of the finalist designs will be on display during the Housewares Design Awards luncheon, to be attended by industry business executives and consumer media.

HOMEWORLD BUSINESS® presents the Housewares Design Awards®. Sponsors of 2013 Housewares Design Awards are The Gourmet Housewares Show at NYIGF, Whitford Corporation and Gourmet Insider magazine.

An independent panel of design and merchandising experts convened in mid-November to judge the entries and select finalists, “Best in Category,” “Best of the Best” and “Green House” winners. Members of the selection committee assembled were excused from judging submissions for which they may have had any affiliation.

Housewares Design Awards finalists were chosen based on design believed to differentiate a product with unique appearance and/or function. The judges considered appropriate aesthetics, innovative materials and technology, user benefits (i.e., performance, comfort, ease of use, safety) and marketability.

Green House Award finalists were selected from a subdivision of entries (all Housewares Design Awards entrants could opt into the Green House Award competition for an additional fee) and were not required to have been among the “Best in Category” finalists.

Products judged had to have been introduced to the market between October 1, 2011, and September 30, 2012, and available for purchase by consumers by October 1, 2012. No prototypes were accepted.

Entries and judging are managed by Housewares Design Awards, LLC.
