Zephyr Ventilation, the industry leader in ventilation hood design, innovation, and technology, launches its third annual “Zephyr Upgrade” Photo Contest. The Social Media campaign encourages fans to upload a photo of their old range hood on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram for a chance to win a Zephyr range hood, among other prizes.

From September 6th – 18th, participants enter a photo and short caption that explains why they need a new hood via a custom Facebook tab or on Twitter and Instagram with the hashtag #ZephyrUpgrade. Following the entry period, contest participants and their social networks can vote on their favorite photo from September 19th – 30th (one vote per person).

Zephyr and Build.com will select the Grand Prize winner from the top 10 most voted entries based on creativity and how bad the owner truly needs an upgrade. The Grand Prize winner receives a Zephyr ventilation hood of their choice, the first runner-up with the most votes receives a hood from Zephyr’s Essentials Collection, the second runner-up with the second most votes receives a hood from Zephyr’s Power Series Collection, and five winners selected at random throughout the contest receive an Element Portable Gas Grill (designed by Zephyr’s Arc Collection designer, Robert Brunner).

“We’re excited to partner with Build.com again for our Zephyr Upgrade Photo Contest,” says Sarah Wahl, Director of Marketing. “This contest supports our message of the importance of a high-performance kitchen ventilation hood, and it’s always fun to see the photo entries and engage with our fans.”

Pirch Costa Mesa Designer Event with Fu-Tung Cheng

Zephyr was invited to host a designer event last week at the Pirch Costa Mesa location with its Cheng Collection designer, Fu-Tung Cheng. More than 65 designers, architects, and industry professionals gathered to hear Cheng speak about his partnership with Zephyr, House 7 Los Altos Hills Project, and his overall design philosophy. The first 30 attendees also received a signed book by Cheng, “Concrete at Home.”

Pirch is a high-end home store and Zephyr dealer that strives to make the experience of shopping “inspirational and joyful.” The retailer builds stunning, expansive showrooms, baristas greet customers by offering them a custom latte, and shoppers can try out all of the products, including an aromatherapy shower and a heated toilet. Pirch is a pioneer in making its stores a destination when shoppers are increasingly going online.

Below are some photos from the successful event!
