This year, we have seven Elite Industry categories whereby upon entering and being shortlisted, your product, campaign or brand will have the chance to be put in front of one of our esteemed judges. The cost per entry for these categories is £100 plus VAT.
What is your star product? It may be your bestseller, maybe it's your most exciting and innovative product, or it could just be a product that has stood the test of time. This is the category to enter if you have that elite product that shines out above all others. Tell us all about it – what it does, who it is aimed at, how is it used and the RRP. If shortlisted, you will be asked to send in samples of the product.
Tell us about your independent retail brand. How have you overcome challenges and built a following of loyal customers? In what ways have you made yourself known to the sector, and what makes you stand out from the crowd? We love the chance to support retail, and look forward to reading your submissions.
What makes your brand stand out from all the rest? Describe the brand, its history and it's ethos. What is the product, who are your customers, what is your social media coverage? How long has the brand been established and how has it evolved and adapted over the years?
