Stationery suppliers and designers have until the end of this week to enter this year's Stationery Awards, with the winners announced during Stationery Show London at the end of April. There are 11 product supplier categories and a Good Design award, all of which are free to enter. The official closing date is Friday 29th March.
The judging panel will include Katy Golden, head of gift for The Great British Card Company, Debbie Wigglesworth, product development consultant at The Paper Collaborative, Sidonie Warren, co-founder of Papersmiths, Sarah Laker, proprietor of Stationery Supplies in Marple, Chris Lambert, founder of Scrawlrbox and Abigail Ball, assistant buyer stationery for Fenwick. The panel will be led by Henri Davis, independent retail consultant and deputy chair of The Giftware Association.
This is also the final week for independent, freelance and student stationery designers to enter the Stationery Designer of the Year category. “This award is a great opportunity for a designer to work with an experienced team to see their ideas brought to life and sold into the UK stationery market,” says Hazel Fieldwick, organiser of Stationery Show London. “Who wouldn't want to walk past a shelf with a display of your own designs on?”
This year's finalists will be announced in the run-up to the Stationery Show in April, with the winners revealed at a ceremony on the first evening of the event.
Stationery Show London takes place on 30th April and 1st May at the Business Design Centre in London. To enter, go to www.stationeryawards.co.uk
