January/February 2019

The Entry Stage

Suppliers

  • Suppliers are invited to submit their innovative products or cases for any of the categories via the simple online form.
  • The online entry form allows you to save progress. To do so, first register for an account and then log in to continue with the application or complete at a later date.
  • Each separate entry in a supplier category costs £95 +VAT, which can be paid via the online form.
  • Suppliers must ensure that their products are delivered in time for the judging stage – full confirmation of this process will be sent via email following a successful entry.
  • The judges will be unable to consider any entry without a product sample (unless agreed otherwise).

The entry stage continues

Retailers

  • Retailers are invited to enter their business into any relevant category via the simple online form, free-of-charge.
  • The online entry form allows you to save progress. To do so, first register for an account and then log in to continue with the application or complete at a later date.
  • Subject to meeting the necessary criteria, entries will proceed to the judging stage.

Completed entries (including any supporting information, imagery and documents) must be submitted by December 14, 2018.

The Judging Stage

Suppliers and Retailers 

  • Two expert judging panels will gather in January/February to review all entries and decide the shortlists – and ultimately one winner – in each category.
  • The winners, as selected by the judges, will be revealed at the DIY Week Awards luncheon, taking place in London on May 10, 2019.
