Entrants Upload a Photo of Old Kitchen Range Hood on Social Media and Encourage Friends to Vote

SAN FRANCISCO, September 15, 2015 — 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 1st – 20th, 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 21st – October 2nd, 2015; one vote per person per day.

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 second place winner with most voted photo receives a hood from Zephyr’s Essentials Collection, and five runners-up receives an Element Portable Gas Grill (designed by Zephyr’s Arc Collection designer, Robert Brunner).

“The Zephyr Upgrade Photo Contest is one of our most popular social media campaigns of the year,” says Sarah Wahl, Director of Marketing. “It helps support our message of the importance of a high-performance kitchen ventilation hood, and our social media followers are able to have fun with their photos and get their networks involved with voting.”
