The National Kitchen & Bath Association’s (NKBA) 2009 design competition, Art of the Industry, is now accepting kitchen and bath projects for consideration. Dal-Tile has been named as the sponsor for the Best Overall Bathroom/Powder Room award where the winner will be awarded $15,000.

The NKBA says it has also decided to more than double the cash prizes for the 2009 competition to over $100,000. Of that amount, $25,000 will be presented to the winner of the Pinnacle of Design Award, which honors the year's top design, representing the peak of form and function.

The entry deadline is October 20, 2008; designers can download an entry form at NKBA.org/Competition. Prizes will be awarded at the NKBA's 2009 Kitchen/Bath Industry Shows & Conference (K/BIS®) held at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta from April 30 to May 3, 2009.
