DPHA Awards Program

2023 Professional Award Winners

The goals of the DPHA Awards Program are to recognize outstanding accomplishments in the decorative plumbing and hardware industry, create industry awareness and spotlight exceptional products, companies, and individuals.  Each year the DPHA team receives an abundance of entries for industry leaders and products alike.

All award nominees must be current DPHA members.  Product of the Year Award nominations are open to the public, and to help ensure that the judging is unbiased, DPHA uses an independent panel of experts judges who are not affiliated with DPHA or any of its members.  Our Professional Award and Design Award nominations are open exclusively to active DPHA members.   

DPHA awards are presented at our Annual Conference held this October 17-20 in Denver, Colorado.  Past winners and can be found here
