Awards Ceremony

The 2020 event will welcome a host of new categories designed to reflect the changing face of the industry and will have a refreshed decision-making process to ensure that the very best take home a trophy.

Entries/Nominations

Monday 28 October 2019 – Friday 17 January 2020

The industry’s leading brands, wholesalers and professionals are invited to enter the Awards – completely free of charge – using a quick and easy online application form.

Subject to meeting the necessary criteria, each entry will proceed to the decision-making stage.

 

Decision-Making

February 2020

Judged Categories

Entries for any of the Wholesaler categories, as well as for the Industry Icon Award, will be critiqued by a panel of selected industry experts. The judges will be the only factor in deciding who will be crowned a champion at the event.

Voted Categories

All Brand categories, with the exception of the Best New Product*, will be decided solely by the vote of wholesalers – after all, who could be more qualified than those who work alongside the Brands day in, day out?

*Entries for the Best New Product will face both a judging panel and an online vote – ensuring that the winner is selected for both technical innovation and practical applications.
