KBSA Designer Awards - entries up on last year
Following the closing date for the KBSA 2015 Designer Awards, the association has confirmed that the number of entries received in all categories is up on last year. Shortlists are currently being discussed by the judging panel, and an announcement will be made shortly.
The largest entry was, unsurprisingly, for kitchens, between the two categories: Kitchens over £25k and Kitchens under £25k, but again there has been more interest this year in the Kitchen Concept Award where entrants work from a common brief and then submit entries as CAD drawings.
The overall increase comes despite members reporting business levels to be substantially ahead of 2014 and reflects the value members now place on the KBSA Designer Awards.
The judges for 2015 are: Renee Mascari, of Mascari Design Solutions and CEO of the kbbNTG; Martin Thomas, director, Denmore Kitchen & Bathroom Studio; Stuart Irving, owner, Ablutions Luxury Bathrooms & Kitchens; Ben Jones, project design manager, Omega; Richard Hibbert, managing director of The Kitchen Showroom, and David Gillett, course leader of the FDA course at Buckinghamshire New University.
The winners for each category will be announced at the KBSA Annual Conference & Networking Dinner on Wednesday 16th September 2015 at the Welcombe Hotel, Stratford Upon Avon.
