Frequently Asked Questions

What is the KDC entry deadline?

The deadline for all entries is 11:59 p.m. January 31, 2017.

Can I enter more than one kitchen in the same contest period?

Yes, you may enter multiple kitchens as long as the projects were completed and constructed between January 1, 2015 and December 31, 2016.

Can I submit an entry that has won in another contest (e.g. NKBA)?

Yes, as long as the project was completed and constructed between January 1, 2015 and December 31, 2016.

I am a consumer/the homeowner, can I enter the contest?

No, this contest is only open to trade professionals.

Is it necessary to have both Sub-Zero and Wolf products in a kitchen design to enter the contest?

Yes, at least one full-size built-in or integrated refrigeration product and at least one Wolf product as the primary cooking appliance for the residence must be present in the design. However, it is not a requirement to use Wolf ventilation, microwave oven or warming drawer products.

Do you want the entrant’s name on the entry materials?

No. Please do not include your name on any of the renderings, floor plans, narratives, or photos, as this is a “blind” contest. Your name will be captured in the entry form which is not shared with the judges.

What are the photography requirements for entry? (Not applicable for student category.)

A minimum of three color photographs of the completed design are required, with a maximum of 10 allowed. Each file can be up to 15 megabytes at highest resolution (a minimum of 300 dpi is recommended). Do not include spaces or special characters (such as % or & or –), when naming the files and use .jpg or .jpeg for the file extension.

Professional photography is not required. However, we do encourage professional photography as it can do a better job in highlighting your work vs. a candid shot. Also, "before" shots are not required, but are welcomed.

Do I need to submit a narrative/essay?

No, however, we do require you to fill out answers to the questions about your design in the entry form. If you wish to share more information/explanation about your work, we offer an area on the entry form to do so…but this additional information/explanation is optional.

Can I sign the Photographer release form?

The Photographer release form MUST be hand-signed by the Kitchen Photographer.

Will my entry be disqualified if I don't submit signed Photographer and Specifier release forms?

No. Once the contest closes we will contact all finalists to obtain signed release forms.
