DPHA Product of the Year Awards


2023 nominations will be accepted through July 15, 2023.  Winners will be announced at the 2023 DPHA Conference in Chicago.

The goal of the DPHA Product of the Year Awards is to recognize outstanding accomplishments in the decorative plumbing and hardware industry, create industry awareness, and spotlight exceptional products created by our DPHA manufacturer members.  DPHA's Product of the Year Program recognizes uniqueness, design, functionality, innovation, and technological superiority.  

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 expert judges who are not affiliated with DPHA or any of its members.  Learn more about the 2023 POTY judges here! 

Nominated products must be from a DPHA member company with a product release date between October 2022 and October 2023.  Nominations can be made by anyone, regardless of DPHA membership.  All nomination fees must be paid in full prior to the nomination deadline to be included in the judging packet.
