The DPHA has created its awards program to recognize the best of the best in an industry that demands nothing less. Each year the DPHA team receives an abundance of entries for industry leaders and products alike. Our Professional Award Nominees are nominated by their peers and recognized for their work ethic, passion and contributions to the DPH family.
DPHA's Product of the Year Program recognizes uniqueness, design, functionality, innovation and technological superiority. To help assure that the judging is unbiased, DPHA outsources the evaluation process to an independent panel of experts who are not affiliated with DPHA or any of its members. The 2021 judges are: Mary Jo Peterson, Mary Jo Peterson Design; Eliot Sefrin, founding director and publisher emeritus of Kitchen & Bath Design News; Alissa Ponchione, executive editor at Hospitality Design magazine, Molly Switzer, Molly N Switzer Designs, and Alena Capra, Alena Capra Designs.
