Window Wonderland Dressing Competition is in motion

Downtown Winston-Salem turns into festive winter wonderland, with bright lights and decorations to celebrate the season.

WStoday: Window Wonderland competition

A community website will be launched for votes once photos have been submitted by contestants.

Get in the holiday spirit because downtown property owners will be vying for the best “Window Wonderland.” Any property facing the street can take part in the window dressing competition. This applies to retail, restaurant, bars, taverns, night clubs, office, galleries, and other spaces.

The prize? Up to $1,000 + bragging rights.

Here are the details:

  • Participants need to complete their window dressing by Friday, Dec. 1 at 5 p.m.
  • Once the storefront is complete, submit a photo via email to Jason Thiel to be considered for prizes
  • People will vote online for their favorite design

The People’s Choice Winner will take home $500. Those who won in the past two years are not eligible this year. Participants can win both the People’s Choice prize and one of three Celebrity Panel prizes. That’s where the Downtown Winston-Salem Partnership will have a celebrity panel who will select winners in each tier:

  • Grand Prize winner: $1,000
  • Runner-up: $500
  • Honorable Mention: $250
