Mark Hutchinson, 2021 Grand Winner

“I am genuinely humbled and honoured to receive the Grand Winner award. The past year has had its ups and down for everyone due to the pandemic, so it's great to be able to look back with pride on the projects I've carried out and the fantastic customer feedback, in spite of the challenges we've all faced.

“It's the first time I've entered so it was a big surprise to win two category awards, let alone be crowned the overall winner, especially as all the Dulux Select Decorators are incredibly talented and have done such amazing work over the past year. It's a privilege to be recognised alongside a group of dedicated and deserving people.”
