For more than 60 years, global companies have entered the annual International Achievement Awards. This prestigious competition provides high-visibility recognition of the best products in the specialty fabrics market. Entries are judged by industry experts, editors, architects, educators, and design professionals who were selected for their knowledge in particular field of study or product area. IFAI members receive four free entries to the competition.
Winners are selected based on complexity, design, workmanship, uniqueness, and function. "Award of Excellence" and "Outstanding Achievement Award" category winners are announced every year at IFAI Expo Americas.
Winning projects receive extensive media exposure including: press releases written and distributed to trade and consumer media outlets, features in IFAI's seven publications and supplements, an award plaque and permission to use the IAA winning logo in business and promotional pieces.
