Winners to be announced in January

Updated Monday, Oct. 26 — The 55th Annual Plant Design Awards contest is now closed.

CHICAGO — The deadline to nominate a drycleaning plant for American Drycleaner’s 55th Annual Plant Design Awards is this Friday, Oct. 23.

“Have you recently built an entirely new drycleaning plant or renovated your existing plant to have a fresh look and improved efficiency?” asks Bruce Beggs, who’s overseen the annual contest for the magazine since 2011. “Enter your plant now for the chance to win one of our industry’s most prestigious honors.”

To nominate a plant for consideration, fill out and submit the online entry form HERE.

Beggs advises plant owners to fill out the form completely and upload a full layout (blueprint or sketch) and several high-quality photos (300 dpi digital files are preferred, but color prints will also suffice) showing off the features that make the entry plant an excellent place to do business.

“And include any information you believe is relevant to the way your plant’s design attracts customers and fulfills your production needs,” he says. “The more detailed your entry, the better!”

Winners will be announced in the magazine’s first issue of 2016 and on this website.

Plant owners entering the competition are instructed to contact Beggs ( to confirm their Plant Design Awards entry has been received. He can also be reached at 312-361-1683.
