Winning Windows

The Winning Windows of New York contest recognizes the best of New York City’s holiday window designs. The Design:Retail judges will evaluate window displays (and in-store experiences) of retailers’ flagship stores in the city, and then select the projects that best capture the holiday spirit while also demonstrating exceptional design and visual merchandising strategies.

Sure, we’re thrilled to hit the streets of New York City, but we encourage our friends across the U.S. and worldwide to participate in the fun! We’ll once again have our Judge’s Choice category, which will be open to all retailers worldwide. We encourage companies to think beyond their  windows and submit broader design concepts and activations that will bring the spirit of the season to consumers.

Projects will be evaluated based on the following three categories:

  • Originality and Creativity
  • Spirit of the Season
  • Execution 

To enter Design:Retail’s Winning Windows contest, please fill out the information on this entry form. Please send any additional photos or media to Alicia Esposito (
