Businesses are reinvesting in storefronts and commercial corridors throughout the city. The Community Design Collaborative and the Philadelphia Department of Commerce will celebrate their ingenuity and entrepreneurship through the 2018 Storefront Challenge – a citywide contest that recognizes Philly's best storefront facade improvement projects.
Nominations are now open for the 2018 Storefront Challenge. Whether it's a new sign, a great paint color combo, or a total overhaul, we want to know about it! Nominate Philly's reborn storefront facades for one of the following awards:
The winners of the 2018 Storefront Challenge will be honored at a public awards celebration on October 10, 2018 during Design Philadelphia. They will also be promoted through the Collaborative and Commerce's communications and media outreach. Winners also receive a framed certificate and a window decal to commemorate the award.
Business owners, customers, neighbors, designers, contractors, corridor managers, community organizations, and property owners are eligible to submit a nomination. Projects must be located within the City of Philadelphia and have been completed between October 2016 and September 2018. There is no fee required to nominate a project. Nominations are due by September 7, 2018.
Winners will be selected by a jury of economic development, retail, and design experts in September. All entrants will be notified about the outcome of the judging prior to the awards event.
