MANHATTAN BEACH, CA - Hardware manufacturer Doug Mockett Co. is set to hold its 30th annual design competition later this year. The competition celebrates innovation in furniture parts, components, accessories and hardware.
 
"Regardless if you may think your idea is too prosaic or too dull or too unusual or not good enough, please send it in and let us decide, " the company says. "You would be surprised at how many First Place award winners were shocked when they got the congratulatory call. They never thought they had a chance."
 
Entrants are asked to send a clear write-up, drawing or model of their idea to contest@mockett.com (PDF files only) with the subject line "Attn: Design Competition." Submission can also be sent by mail to the company: Doug Mockett & Company Inc.,
PO Box 3333, Manhattan Beach, CA 90266
 
According to Mockett, there can be an unlimited number of first place winners; in the past winners have ranged from one to four. First Place is awarded $1,000, an engraved achievement trophy, and a royalty based on sales.
 
The deadline for entries is September 8.  Judges will make their decisions in December. For more information visit www.mockett.com/design-competition.
