The entry process remains the same for 2020 awards as last year. Entries, including images and copy, must be received by Monday 2nd December, 2019. Shortlisted entries will be contacted to request a product sample for the judging process which will take place before Christmas.
Results will be announced in January 2020 to enable winners to promote their winning products before and at Merchandise World.
