CHAGRIN FALLS, Ohio, Aug. 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Tarkett, the worldwide leader in innovative and sustainable flooring and sports surface solutions, has announced the launch of the #WeLikeItNatural Creative Contest. The contest, which runs through mid-October, uses an interactive photo challenge over Tarkett's social media channels to educate and engage architects, designers and product specifiers using the Johnsonite iQ™ Natural product.
As part of the #WeLikeItNatural promotion, Tarkett is giving current and prospective specifiers the opportunity to see and feel their top four color choices of Johnsonite iQ™ Natural and submit photographs featuring the product samples in an outdoor environment. The top submissions will be showcased on the Johnsonite Facebook page for voting. Weekly drawings will be held and three finalists (as determined by total votes) will be eligible for the grand prizes – a $500 REI gift card or one of two Tarkett FitBit activity trackers.
"We know that architects and designers like to engage with products and touch and feel samples," said Jeff Krejsa, Senior Vice President with Tarkett North America. "Through this fun, interactive contest, we are not only able to educate users on the benefits of our iQ™ Natural product, but help drive their creativity by building a more in-depth familiarity with the product. We also hope this will encourage specifiers to take a more environmentally-focused approach to product selection."
The award-winning iQ™ Natural is a major advancement in commercial vinyl sheet flooring that combines beauty, high performance and sustainability. Developed to meet the demands for interior spaces that perform as a platform for productivity, iQ™ Natural is the only no wax, no finish product in the marketplace.
