This year, we are introducing THREE new categories.

On the manufacturer side, the Best Industry Distributor award is also new. These extra categories provide even more opportunities for everyone to get involved!
You can enter online in three simple steps. Simply head to www.ertawards.co.uk and click on the ‘Enter now for 2022’ button on the home page. There, select your category (or you can select multiple categories at the time of entering), supply your supporting information and media, and add your contact details.
For retailers: It’s important you write a great entry statement and provide any additional relevant information, such as your background, about your business and shopfloor, your digital platforms, your staff or your customer service. All this goes in front of our expert judging panel for consideration, so make it hard-hitting and concise!
For manufacturers: Provide as much information as you can about your products and services, or about your team members if it’s the Independent Sales Representative Award, but remember that retailers may be quite familiar with you and your brand so don’t go too mad!
There’s plenty of help and advice, and more detailed information on the judging criteria for each of the award categories, on the ERT Awards website: www.ertawards.co.uk. Look out for the top tips for entering on the Categories & Criteria page!
The retailer categories will be judged solely by this year’s judges, while the manufacturer categories are voted for by retailers using a dedicated online platform via the ERT Awards website. So manufacturers, now is the time to engage with your retail partners more than ever to encourage more votes for you!
You have until 27 May 2022 to get your entry in, so don’t delay!
All the winners will be announced in London later this year – exact details coming soon!
