Celebrating Great Design

At Bentwood Luxury Kitchens we are inspired everyday by the outstanding residential designs our dealers create utilizing both the Bentwood™ and Harmoni™ products. We thought now is the time to recognize, support, and promote the talent within our own national dealer network with the 2023 Kitchen Contest. In addition, we will honor 1 exceptional designer and project as an overall winner who will receive the prestigious Bill Algier Award!

Beloved kitchen designer Bill Algier touched many lives throughout his 30+ yr career, right up to his retirement in 2021. He was a true visionary, with a unique talent for creating beautiful, thoughtful luxury designs. His impact was felt by the clients he worked with as well as our own factory team who took valuable recommendations that helped us grow our product offerings. To honor such a talented friend, we developed the Bill Algier Award as a perfect way to recognize other outstanding dealer professionals.

We want to thank all of the talented kitchen designers within our national dealer network
and encourage you to identify projects that could be a winning project!


Projects can win in any of our six categories. Each category will reward $3,000 to a single project winner. In addition to winning a category, 1 overall winner will also receive the Bill Algiers Award and $2,000.
Review the categories below and complete your entry form with your project details.

We ask that no duplicate entries be submitted.



Each category receives a first place winner who takes home $3,000 for his or her project. With six categories, that makes $18,000 total in first place in category awards.

More Wins

You can enter multiple projects in the contest – just make sure they each have a category. You can enter your Harmoni project in its category, and a Bentwood project into its category as well. Multiple categories to win!


In addition to winning one of more categories, 1 overall winner will be chosen to receive the prestigious Bill Algier Award. This is considered “Best in Show” and comes with a $2,000 award, making the total award purse $20,000!
