With the beginning of a new year, Forbo Flooring Systems is excited to launch its brand new Forbo Awards, replacing its previous Forbo Escapes competition. This new iteration of Forbo’s industry-renowned architectural design competition includes three categories, with a special focus on sustainability, and a bumper prize package for the lucky winning practices.

Since 2012, Forbo has ran a competition to recognise the crème de la crème of commercial projects utilising Forbo’s flooring solutions. However, 2024 sees Forbo launch a new Awards style competition to recognise a wider variety of projects from the architectural, interior design and flooring industry.

The Forbo Awards features three categories: Project of the Year, Sustainable Project of the Year and Public Choice. Each award will recognise and celebrate a different element of interior design, whether it be a high-end aesthetic or impressive environmental credentials, allowing for a range of projects to be submitted for judging.

Speaking about the new Forbo Awards, Donna Hannaway, Head of Marketing, from Forbo, said: “With such a big focus on sustainability going into 2024, we felt it was important to recognise those who are making environmentally conscious specifications. Not only this, but we wanted to help get everyone involved in the judging process and voting for their favourite project. Through our Public Choice Award, architects and designers can have their say on the outcome of our awards.

We’re especially happy to be offering a new prize package, with each winning practice receiving a double-page spread in FX Magazine focusing on their winning project and two tickets as our guests to the FX Awards in November, amongst other prizes. This further ensures that their celebrated project gets the industry recognition and attention it deserves.”

Online entry into the 2024 Forbo Awards opened on 8th January 2024, with a closing date of 31st July 2024.
