2013 Design Excellence Awards

In the interest of being fair and SPOTLIGHTING what kind of level and quality of talent we have in Ottawa, the NKBA Ottawa Chapter has reorganized the Awards! 

The Categories are broader and allow for all types/style of design to compete and move toward an award status. There are also opportunities for NEW designers to bring to the forefront their name in a special award. We have added a “conception only” awards, to highlight creativity that may have never come to fruition! Again this year we offer an opportunity for students to showcase their abilities. To round the awards out, there will be a "best bang for your buck" category, a "universal/aging in place" category and of course our ever popular "people’s choice". 
All of this along with our regular Kitchen and Bath awards – which now have a total of 16 awards available, to be judge by BUDGET and STYLE – allow all to compete on as even a playing field as possible. We hope that you, your company and industry professionals alike will continue to support our very important cause – the advancement of the students at Algonquin College’s Kitchen and Bath Program, and of course the NKBA Ottawa Chapter. 

Our event this year will be held at the Museum of Nature (central for all to attend) and have a true Gala feel. A 1920’s ‘Jazz Club’ influence will be the center stage theme of the event this year. Our hope is that this event will become the talk of the town and all will enjoy themselves immensely whilst sporting ‘Satin and Silk’ evening gowns to suit the period – if you like. 

Please join us on April 26th, 2014, for the 2013 NKBA Ottawa Chapter DESIGN EXCELLENCE AWARDS (DEA)!
