Don’t miss your chance to shine

With entry now in full swing, don’t miss out on the opportunity to get the recognition your company, team or product deserves.

For retail businesses, there are seven categories that can shine a light on your stand-out business and colleagues, as well as recognising your achievements over the past year.

Why not consider competing for one of the following:

The Business Expansion Award

Marketing Initiative Award

Training & Development Award

Team of the Year (20+ branches)

Team of the Year (fewer than 20 branches)

Website/Digital Initiative of the Year

Retailer of the Year

As well as revamping our categories to reflect the changing home improvement and garden retail sector, we have also simplified the entry process, to make it even more accessible to the busy suppliers and retailers in our industry – so it has never been easier to enter!

Meanwhile, there are 12 categories open to suppliers and manufacturers:

Decorating Product of the Year

DIY Product of the Year

Garden Tool of the Year

Hand Tool and Accessory of the Year

Home & Kitchen Product of the Year 

Lighting & Electrical Product of the Year

Power Tool and Accessory of the Year

Security Product of the Year

Garden Care Product of the Year

Garden Leisure Product of the Year

Digital Investment of the Year

Retailer Support Initiative

With our judging panels set to be announced very shortly, this could be the perfect chance to get your product or initiative in front of buyers from leading high street names, as well as top independents.

The upcoming DIY Week Awards take place lunchtime on Friday, May 11 at the Park Plaza Victoria in London. This could be your chance to be part of the major industry event, networking with peers from across the home improvement and garden sector, and potentially even up on stage celebrating a win.
