DOMOTEX HANNOVER 2009 will take pace during 17 to 20 January at Hannover Exhibition Grounds, Germany. Deutsche Messe is inviting exhibitors to participate in competition for the 2009 Carpet Design Awards (CDA). The carpets entered will be judged in 10 categories in the handcrafted carpet segment on the basis of their exceptional quality and originality. Total prize money of 10,000 euros is at stake. The competition is open solely to companies exhibiting at Domotex HANNOVER 2009.

The winners will be selected by a top-ranking jury and announced at the Carpet Design Awards during DOMOTEX HANNOVER 2009.

With the steady growth in the number of entries received over the past few years and the keen interest among trade visitors, the Carpet Design Awards have increasingly proven a valuable addition to the DOMOTEX repertoire. At DOMOTEX HANNOVER 2008, for example, a total of 148 carpets from 15 countries were submitted. The jury of professionals rate the entries in terms of design, quality of the material, craftsmanship and originality. The three best entries in each category will be exhibited in Hall 15 at DOMOTEX HANNOVER 2009.

Thus all finalists enjoy the opportunity of presenting their products in a dynamic, professional setting. The first places in each category will be announced during a special ceremony on Sunday, 18 January 2009 at DOMOTEX 2009. Each winner receives 1,000 euros and a trophy. During the preliminary judging and the final round of the competition, the judges are unaware of the identity of the competing companies and thus do not know who has created a particular carpet. The visiting public is also given the opportunity to select their favourite among the 30 finalists. A special "Visitors' Prize" is then awarded for the carpet chosen by popular acclaim.
