The Kitchen Bathroom Bedroom Specialists Association, Kbsa has announced that the Designer Awards 2019 are now open for entries.
Kbsa national chair Richard Hibbert says, “We are delighted to be opening our 2019 design awards for entry. With a substantial number of new members over the last year, we are looking forward to welcoming entries from those that have not had the opportunity to submit before.
“Our awards are established as one of the most worthwhile awards in the industry because of the anonymous judging and they are the only ones to come from a trade association that is dedicated to the independent kitchen and bathroom retailer market.
“Retailers know that they can gain substantial PR from entering as all shortlisted projects receive PR support and promotion of their winning designs. Winners benefit from a substantial package of personalised PR support, as well as exposure direct to consumers via our own consumer handbook.
“We are also delighted to offer once again a financial reward for the winner of the Young Designer Award. They win a cash prize of £500 and, at the judge’s discretion, an additional training/educational grant of £1,500 could also be awarded.”
