Until January 31, 2022, Canadian and international designers and architects are invited to submit their kitchen projects. To be eligible, projects must have been completed between January 1, 2019, and December 31, 2021.

For more than 25 years, Sub-Zero, Wolf, and Cove – the industry leaders in high-end refrigeration, wine storage, cooking appliances, and dishwashing solutions – have honored design professionals who incorporate Sub-Zero, Wolf, and Cove products into innovative, beautiful kitchen designs.

The kitchen – indoor or outdoor, contemporary, transitional or traditional – must be designed by professional kitchen designers, architects, interior designers, builders, or remodelers. Students are also invited to enter the contest in the Student category.

Entering is free and contestants may submit more than one qualifying kitchen. The kitchen must include at least one Sub-Zero and one Wolf appliance. Complete entry requirements and contest rules are found in the attached PDF document.

The judges, a panel of esteemed global professionals in architecture, interior design, and kitchen design, will select 29 finalists, and from there, the 14 global winners will be chosen. The Kitchen Design Contest is judging anonymously: the entrant’s name, company name, or school are not visible during the judging process.

All finalists and winners will benefit from digital media exposure and a trip for two to attend the Winners’ Summit & Gala: a time for celebration, networking, and unforgettable experiences. The venue and details will be confirmed in the fall of 2022. In addition, winners will receive print media exposure and cash prizes from US $5,000 to $20,000 depending on the category.
