Businesses are reinvesting in storefronts and commercial corridors throughout Philadelphia. The Community Design Collaborative and the Philadelphia Department of Commerce recognizes their entrepreneurship and creativity through the Storefront Challenge – a citywide contest to recognize Philly's best storefront facade improvement projects. The 2018 Storefront Challenge marks the tenth year of this unique program with an awards event and a celebratory tenth anniversary exhibition. Sponsorships are available.
Nominate a storefront. 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:
Business owners, customers, neighbors, designers, contractors, corridor managers, community organizations, and property owners are eligible to submit a nomination. Winners will receive a framed certificate and window decal to commemorate the award - gain visibility through promotion and media outreach by the Collaborative and Commerce.
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. 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. Nominations are due by September 7, 2018.
Sponsor the event and exhibition. Celebrate the entrepreneurship and design savvy that is transforming Philadelphia's neighborhood commercial corridors.
