SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - August 22, 2013) - Zephyr, the industry leader in ventilation hood design, innovation and technology, has launched its first Facebook photo contest that encourages its fans to upload a photo for a chance to win a new Zephyr ventilation hood, among other prizes.
The contest challenges entrants to upload a photo via Facebook, Instagram or Twitter with the hashtag #ZephyrUpgrade showcasing their current kitchen range hood that is in need of an upgrade. The photo should also include a brief caption explaining why the entrant wants or needs an upgraded hood. After the entry period, contest participants can have their friends vote on Facebook for their entry; each Facebook user can vote for one photo once per day.
The Zephyr Upgrade contest winner with the most votes will receive a new Zephyr ventilation hood of their choice as the Grand Prize. The photo with the second most votes will receive a hood from the Essentials Europa Collection and five runner-ups will receive Element Portable Gas Grills, designed by Zephyr Arc Collection designer, Robert Brunner.
The photo entry period runs from August 20th - September 15th and the voting period is from September 16th - 30th. Winners will be announced on Tuesday, October 1st.
"We have been actively growing our social media networks over the past year, so we're excited to launch our Zephyr Upgrade contest that stimulates creativity, while also promoting how an individual kitchen appliance, such as a range hood, can dramatically upgrade your space," says Sarah Kramer, Director of Marketing. "We have held contests and giveaways in the past, but this is the first time we are incorporating three influential social media networks (Facebook, Instagram and Twitter), with the intention of reaching a broad and active online community."
Since 1997, San Francisco-based Zephyr has continued to bring design, innovation and technology to the forefront of the kitchen ventilation hood industry. The company has challenged the perception of what ventilation means in kitchen design and created a new awareness of the importance of a high performing ventilation system. With acclaimed talent such as artistic visionary, Fu-Tung Cheng, and industrial designer, Robert Brunner, Zephyr is able to create cutting-edge residential range hoods unlike any other company. In addition, Zephyr has pioneered ventilation hood technology with the industry's first DCBL Suppression System; an exclusive innovation that delivers the most silent, energy efficient and performance-driven range hoods available today. As a direct result of its commitment to elevating range hood design and technology, Zephyr is the recipient of several prestigious awards including Consumer Report Buy Rating, Consumer Digest Best Buy Rating, Chicago Athenaeum Good Design, ADEX (Awards for Design Excellence), Appliance Design 'Excellence In Design' and the Architectural Products 'Product Innovation Award.'
