THE ENTRY STAGE
Entering the IER Awards is easy. Simply enter your innovative products and award-worthy cases, for free, via the online entry form. You can save your progress on the entry form by registering for an account and then logging in to complete the application at a later date.
This year, manufacturers can also enhance their product entries – showcasing their outstanding designs to the industry’s leading retailers. For a small fee (£100 for a single product image or £79 each for multiple entries), an image of your product can be featured in the dedicated website gallery and on the voting form.
THE DECISION-MAKING PROCESS
An expert judging panel will review all valid manufacturer/supplier entries against the criteria to create a shortlist for each category. Those shortlisted will proceed to the voting stage, where retailers will be handed the power to decide the winners and highly commended.
