Is Your Kitchen Inspired?

June 23, 2011

Based on the success of last year’s competition, Zephyr has announced the 2011 Inspire My Kitchen Design Contest (IMKDC). The contest brings together culinary aficionados and awards homeowners and professional designers with prizes for incorporating a Zephyr range hood into their kitchen.

The 2011 IMKDC will bring back Zephyr’s panel of judges, including artist Fu-Tung Cheng, industrial designer Robert Brunner and chef Tom Hurley. To enter, contestants can submit digital photos and a brief narrative describing their kitchen’s design. Visitors to the IMKDC website will then review the submissions and elect their top five kitchens. After the initial voting, the judging panel will review the submissions, awarding points based on materials, aesthetics, utility and the “X-Factor,” the kitchen one would most enjoy entertaining guests in. Winners will be announced on January 16, 2012.

Winners of the homeowner category will be awarded a Dream Dinner grand prize consisting of a gourmet dinner for them and 16 of their closest friends, by Chef Hurley and his team. The dinner will be paired with premier and rare wines and champagnes from around the world. The prize will also include a hands-on cooking class by Chef Hurley the night before the dinner.

Winners of the designer category will be awarded cash prizes: $2,500 for third place, $5,000 for the runner-up and a $10,000 grand prize, which will be awarded to the kitchen designer who best uses a Zephyr range hood.
