American luxury kitchen appliance brand Thermador has officially wrapped up its 2012-2013 Kitchen Design Challenge into which talented designers across the country submitted their favorite designs from 2012 and 2013 for deliberation.
The contestants submitted outstanding luxurious, inspiring, and breathtaking kitchen designs. Of contestants, 16 regional winners were chosen. Each won $2,500 and all-expenses-paid trip to Souther California for a celebratory gala in September where more prizes were awarded. $100,000 in cash prizes will be ultimately awarded in total to the winners of this competition.
Three national grand prize winners and two runners-up will be chosen from the regional winners to receive a part of the prize purse. The categories for these winners are best Traditional/Transitional kitchen, Contemporary/Modern kitchen, and best use of refrigeration in kitchen design.
This year’s challenge saw a doubling of winners from 8 to 16 since past years. The contest was expanded to include more opportunities to win and a large increase in cash prizes. The full list of winners can be viewed at http://www.thermador.com/trade/kitchendesignchallenge2013.
