Laval, Quebec – October 14, 2016 - Uniboard, a North American leader in engineered wood products, is proud to announce the launch of a unique design contest for all Quebec architects and designers. They will have the chance to win three nights in New York City, a value of $4,500, and entry to the ICFF during Design Week 2017.

To participate, Quebec architects and designers simply have to submit a photo of one of their design project(s) using Uniboard’s Brushed Elm and/or Riviera Oak revolutionary finishes between October 14, 2016 and February 28, 2017. A short list of three finalists will be selected by the Uniboard team and celebrity designer, Manon Leblanc. The chosen design will then be showcased on Uniboard’s Facebook page, @UniboardCanada, to be voted for by the Facebook community from March 9 to March 31, 2017. The finalist with the most votes will be the winner.

Riviera Oak by Uniboard is the first 2nd generation double-sided synchronized finish produced in North America. Following Brushed Elm launched 3 years ago, Riviera Oak, the latest addition to the synchronized finishes, is truly Redefining WoodTM. ‘’With our Redefine Design contest, we want to inspire the architect and design community to create projects using the most trend-forward and authentic products on the market,’’ says Don Raymond, VP Marketing and Sales US.
