Nominations are now open. Click here to submit your company’s best innovations of 2016, which aren’t limited to just product. The innovations could be ground-breaking marketing campaigns, creative office or store layouts or merchandising plans that stand out among the rest. Whatever the innovation, it should be unique to the industry and set the course in a new direction.

Use the form to fill out your submission by Wednesday, August 31, 2016. There’s a limit of five nominations per brand or store. Please also include a high-resolution photo with your submission(s).
