DETROIT -- Lawrence Technological University’s Detroit Center for Design + Technology (DCDT) is bringing back its Holiday Window Walk event for a second year to highlight local creative businesses and designers.
The DCDT Design Incubator has paired local artists, designers and Detroit businesses in an effort to create holiday-themed windows in nine locations in and around its own Midtown neighborhood.
Judges – including Karl Daubmann, dean of LTU’s College of Architecture and Design, and Cydney Camp, business programs manager at Design Core Detroit -- will review the designs and place their votes before Tuesday, Dec. 4. Shoppers and visitors are encouraged to vote, too. From now through Dec. 3, visitors may add a photo of their favorite display to Instagram, Facebook or Twitter and tagging it with @detdesigntech and using #HolidayWindowWalk18. All tagged social media posts that appear during this voting window will be tallied and counted as part of the final decision.
The winning display will be announced Dec. 4. The winning business and designer each take home $500. Our first runner up business and design team will earn $250 each this year. The competition is sponsored by Hudson Webber Foundation and awards supported by Design Core Detroit.
Visit the following businesses, competing to earn First Place for holiday designs:  
Said Christopher Stefani, DCDT Design Incubator director and associate director of LTU’s DCDT: “We’re so excited to build on the momentum from our inaugural year of the Holiday Window Walk. This time we’re focused closer to our Midtown home base, with participating businesses nearby in the Cass Corridor and throughout Capital Park. We hope visitors and shoppers take time to view and enjoy the designs.”

Situated in Midtown along Woodward Avenue, DCDT programs provide additional opportunities to engage organizations, professionals, students and groups within the city.
