Kitchen Design Contest


Celebrating the design community

For more than 25 years, the purpose of this contest has remained constant: to celebrate and elevate the best-of-the-best kitchen design in the industry. To protect the excellence and distinction of the contest during this period of unprecedented interruptions tied to the COVID-19 pandemic, Sub-Zero Group, Inc., has extended the contest’s deadline by one year. The new deadline for submission is January 31, 2022. It is our hope that this extension will offer trade professionals greater opportunity to complete disrupted and deferred projects and participate in the contest. Projects that meet the contest’s requirements and are completed in 2019, 2020, and 2021 are eligible. For full contest entry requirements, please see the Official Rules.
