Awards & Events: Product Innovator Awards

Kitchen & Bath Business’ Product Innovator Awards honor manufacturers for superior product innovation. If you are a manufacturer that has unveiled a new kitchen or bath product in the last 12 months that has not been previously entered, you’re eligible to enter the 2018 KBB Product Innovator Awards. It is an independently judged awards program recognizing product innovation, and it is optional to participate.


The Product Innovator Awards will open at 9 a.m. EST on April 30, 2018, and will end July 30, 2018, at 5 p.m. EST. All entries must be received by the Entry Deadline.

Competition fee is $200 per entry/product. Each product must have its own entry form. No refunds of entry fees will be issued.

Products must have been introduced for regular production (no prototypes) in the last 12 months. Please submit a single product, not a line of products. Entries will be judged after the contest is officially closed by a panel of industry professionals, who will base their decisions on a variety of criteria, including innovation, aesthetics, function and technical advancements.

The winners will be announced and featured in the KBB October 2018 issue and on kbbonline.com once the October issue has mailed. All products will be considered by KBB editors for future placement in the magazine or online. Winners who are exhibitors at KBIS 2019 will receive signage for their booth to be placed near the winning product on display. There are no monetary prizes.
