HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO ENTER?
Over the past twelve months, businesses have faced a number of unprecedented challenges and we want to make sure that every single company from across the housewares sector has an opportunity to celebrate their successes – so we’ve scrapped entry fees for this year’s event!
That means, whether you’re a manufacturer looking to showcase your latest innovations or a retailer wanting to project your business to the wider market, it won’t cost you a single penny to put yourself in the running to win a coveted Housewares award.
Can I nominate someone else?
Yes! Nominations are highly encouraged in the retailer categories, and the individual categories such as Sales Person of the Year and Retailer Buyer of the Year. Just submit their details using the same online entry form.
WHAT IF I NEED TO MAKE A CHANGE AFTER ENTERING?
If you need to update your entry after submission, just get in touch with firstname.lastname@example.org with your request.
Which category should i enter?
Whichever matches what it is that you do best! If you’re having trouble deciding which category(s) to enter, you can always get in touch with us at email@example.com and we can help guide you in the right direction.
how does the judging work?
We’ve put together two incredible panels of industry experts to serve as our judges: one for the retail categories, and one for the manufacturer/supplier categories. These independent judges will review each and every entry to determine both the shortlist and winners in the relevant categories.
Which categories are voted for?
We’ve introduced an industry vote for the Sales Person of the Year, Industry Personality Awards and Retailer Buyer of the Year categories. This means that those that work with the relevant professionals day in, day out will be able to show their support and be influential in determining the winners.
