THE PRODUCT CATEGORIES

This section of the website includes all the information to enable you to enter all of the product award categories of the Excellence In Housewares Awards 2020. These annual awards are open to all UK/Ireland based suppliers or distributors of products.

 

For this year only, in light of the Covid-19 Pandemic, entry and judging of all of the product categories will be completed online (this includes uploading imagery). This means that unlike other years, there is no need to send any physical samples of products. The awards are free to enter. You can submit entries into as many categories as well as make multiple entries into individual categories as you wish.

 

All entries will be judged online by an extensive panel of retail buyers.

 

The deadline has been extended to Friday 24 July 2020 - it will not go beyond this.

 

For all the product categories entered online you will need to register and create a password. Once you have done this it will mean that you will be able to save your submission progress as well as go back and edit an entry right up until the deadline.Click on the relevant category box below to see the full criteria and begin your entry. (If you haven’t registered with a password already it will ask you to do this).

 

Good luck!
