What it’s about

The contest has two categories: residential design and commercial design. The top winner from each category will receive a $2,500 cash prize. Second-place winners will win a $1,000 cash prize, and third-place winners will win a $500 cash prize.

The two first-place winners will also have their work featured in the 2015 edition of STIR magazine. All winners will be featured on our Sherwin-Williams for Design Pros Facebook page.
