How it works?
UK wholesalers are asked to enter themselves for one or more award via the Electrical Wholesaler Awards website.
The wholesaler awards will be decided by a two part system, a judging panel will convene in March to cast their scores on the entries received according to the criteria. In addition, customer voting will commence beginning of February 2017 and conclude on 31st March 2017.
With a combined score from judging and customer voting, the top five entries will make the award category shortlist with the highest scorers in each category being the recipient of the relevant category’s award.
A winner will then be presented with their relevant award on the night of the ceremony.
