There are now just two weeks to go to get your entries in to the biggest awards in the UK and Ireland KBB sector.
Entries for The kbbreview Retail & Design Awards 2021 close on Thursday, February 18 and there will be no extensions to that date.
The awards are open to any retailers, designers, suppliers and – for the first time – installers in the UK and Ireland kitchen and bathroom sector. It is also, as always, completely free to enter
The kbbreview Retail & Design Awards are the biggest and longest running awards in the kitchen and bathroom industry – and the effect of the 2020 lockdown has been made a defining criteria in the entries and the judging.
In the retail categories of the awards, judges will look specifically at how those businesses have managed and negotiated the turmoil of 2020 as well as the normal criteria.
The design categories will run as normal with awards for different projects at different project costs.
There are two new categories for 2021. For the first time, the vital contribution of installers will be recognised with the Installation Company of the Year award. This is being run in partnership with the British Institute of KBB Installation (BiKBBI).
And a one-off category – the Lockdown Support Special Award – is specifically open for suppliers and will reward how they have helped and supported their retailers through the crisis.
The full list of categories you can enter can be found below.
