The Kitchen Bathroom Bedroom Specialists Association, has reminded retailers that the deadline for design award submissions has been extended until 11 December 2020.
The new date allows for the awards to be made at the re-scheduled conference and awards dinner, which will now take place on 28 April 2021 at the same venue, the Crowne Plaza in Stratford-upon-Avon.
“We want to remind designers that the design awards are still very much open and encourage them to submit their entries,” says Kbsa national chair Richard Hibbert.
“The Kbsa Designer Awards are best in class, one of the few that are truly transparent with anonymous judging so that everyone has a fair chance of winning.
“With an enhanced rewards and recognition package, all shortlisted projects receive a personalised PR support package to maximise the promotion of their winning designs and the winners receive a substantial suite of PR support aids, which includes exposure direct to consumers via our own consumer handbook and a possible national magazine case study.
“For the third year running we will offer a financial reward for the Young Designer Award to show how serious we are about promoting excellence at all levels of education and training.
“Now could be the ideal time to look at completed projects and put an entry together, before the new deadline of 11 December 2020.”

- Kitchens up to £25k
