Jerzy Woźniak
Architect (Modelina Architekci), Poznan (Poland)

"Being one of three winners of Euroshop Retail Design Award has been a huge surprise for us. It is the best proof that strong, holistic and coherent ideas allow to create a memorable and interesting retail space, no matter the size of the shop or popularity of the brand. The award itself became an impulse for a short and intense trip to Shanghai to attend the glamorous rooftop gala. Thank you!"  


Ken Nisch
Chairman (JGA), Southfield (USA)

“To be included in such a rarified group of brands, retailers, and innovators was most exciting for the JGA team. We thank EuroShop RetailDesign Awards for this important and coveted award. The ability to work with great partners, The Hershey Company, Canadian Niagara, and the MGM group, was a key element not only of the professional satisfaction, but of the creative energy that is so much part of the Hershey’s Chocolate World Las Vegas experience.”


Dan Butler
Former Vice President National Retail Federation (NRF), Washington D.C. (USA)

"The EuroShop Retail Design Awards are unique in that they cultivate nominations from all seven continents and every year manage to find the best of the best in store design projects from design firms of all kinds. These awards help to promote retail store design beyond the design community and help to promote the importance of design to the entire global retail community. Most importantly the awards recognize excellence in design that is truly worthy of praise."


Ignaz Gorischek
Vice President, Store Development Neiman Marcus Properties Group

"What a lovely evening, this event is the only one where you can meet some of the the top designers on our field today. The electricity in the room has an after effect for days! Truly a memorable experience."


Martin Pérez
Director Store Planning, Servicios Liverpool, S.A. DE C.V.

"Liverpool is thrilled to be part of a contest in which great designers from many parts of the world participate, the Gala was a great opportunity to get inspired by other people's work and to expand our network, and we are really looking forward to Euroshop in 2014 to get more inspiration."

Why should YOU enter?

Present your project to a trade audience and join the ranks of the prestigious prize winners.

Take advantage of its being published in EHI media and cooperation with our partners. If your project is nominated for the final round or wins the award, it will be published in the following media:

  • the trade magazine stores+shops (print version with a run of 12,000 copies and online)
  • the official press releases of EHI und Messe Düsseldorf to members and press contacts (national and international)

Entry Guideline and Supporting Documents

An entry must be submitted along with a detailed description of the project and its special features, as well as details of the location, area, responsible architect/shopfitting company, suppliers, etc. Please consider: It is not suitable to submit shopping centers as a project, since Shopping Centers include many different stores and designs while this award solely evaluates the interior design of one single store/department store/restaurant etc.

As in planning of a store concept, details must not be disregarded. Please clearly explain the special features of your project to the jury, e.g.: The basic planning ideas, challenges in accomplishing the project and how they were overcome, which materials or colours were chosen and why, innovative elements, technical innovations, etc.  

Photos are the best means to convey as accurate a picture of the store to the jury. You should therefore enclose at least 4, and best of all 5 to 6 photos showing different views of the project along with your entry. (Resolution: 300 dpi; size 24 cm in height and width)
