PAVE Global is excited to announce it's time to nominate and honor the brilliant visionaries who are shaping the future of retail with our 16th Annual Rising Star Award!
A Rising Star is a young professional who has exhibited outstanding leadership in the brand environment industry. These emerging leaders anticipate client needs, motivate a team, transform the simple into the extraordinary, and inspire the consumer.
RECOMMEND A RISING STAR
Traditionally, participation in the nomination process is open to retailers, designers, and industry suppliers for recognizing an individual's extraordinary contributions and talented mindset as innovators and leaders among their peers. This year for the first time, PAVE is opening up nominations to allow individuals to self-nominate.
Reflecting on the blended channels that comprise a brand today, you can shine a spotlight on your nominee with a prestigious accolade that will be a testament to their visionary influence and inspiration throughout their career!
Nominations are free and they can motivate a nominee to do even more great things. Gather some of their work and tell us why you think they should become the next PAVE Rising Star!
The PAVE Rising Star judges are looking for individuals who are original, passionate visionaries. A Rising Star nominee is intuitive in decision-making, willing to take risks, ambitious, persistent, resourceful, and socially responsible. They demonstrate authenticity in their designs and can implement sustainable projects.
Nominees may be from your own organization or another.
Nominees must be engaged in the design or supply of retail environments. This includes designers, visual merchandisers, store planners, and project managers.
Nominees must be 40 years of age or younger as of December 2023.
Nominations can be self-submitted or submitted by a retailer, design firm, or industry supplier.
Attach three to five supporting materials that demonstrate what makes the nominee a rising star. Provide descriptions of images, including program intent and a brief line on its success.
There is no fee to make a nomination.
All nominations will be reviewed by a panel of industry professionals. PAVE will contact the senior management for all finalists for employment verification and any additional input as needed.
PRESENTATION OF AWARDS
All finalists will be recognized this December during the PAVE Gala on December 7, 2023, in New York City where the winner will be announced.
