Last chance to enter Gift Of The Year awards

MIDNIGHT tonight is your last chance to enter the Gift Of The Year awards – and entries are already up on the 2013 competition.

Last-minute entries have been flooding in as companies jostle for the chance to win one of the gift and home industries’ most coveted accolades which is run by the Giftware Association with the awards ceremony held at Spring Fair.
GA chief executive Isabel Martinson said: “As any past winner, however large or small their business, will tell you gaining Gift Of The Year status is a tremendous boost adding credibility and desirability to any product.
Winning brings tremendous PR opportunities, is a fantastic fillip to staff and is also a lot of fun. Entering is easy and inexpensive and anyone who believes they have a potential winner should give it a try.”
Hallmark’s grandson first birthday Noah’s Art card topped the card and wrap category this year, with two publishers at the other end of the company size and age scale proving the wide-ranging scope of the entries as Cards For Art’s Sake and Tranquil Space Designs picked up highly commended accolades for Goose and Twinkle Twinkle respectively.
The judging will take place during January and all the winning and highly commended products (two in each category) will go on display on a special Gift Of The Year stand in Hall 5 F88/G89 at Spring Fair International in Birmingham from February 2-6.

The prize giving ceremony takes place on the Sunday evening when representatives from the winning and highly commended companies attend an invitation-only drinks and canapés party.
This provides a tremendous networking opportunity as it is attended by the great and good of the industry, together with the judging panel and other key retailers.


“This event propels all those companies concerned straight into the gift and home limelight and guarantees a steady flow of interested visitors to their stands for the remainder of the show,” added Isabel.
