Next Friday is the deadline to enter your product into one of the ten categories of the UK Outdoor Industry Awards 2022 – you can find the link to enter below.
A NEW CATEGORY HAS BEEN ADDED FOR THE FIRST TIME THIS YEAR!
The Disability & Inclusion category has created to promote that the outdoors is open to everyone. Do you have a product or service that helps people from all backgrounds to enjoy the Great Outdoors? Examples can include: guidebook for accessible walks, specially adapted apparel, wheelchair friendly tents, a training course designed for people with specific requirements and so on.
All the entries will be displayed at the Outdoor Trade Show (OTS) which takes place from June 7-9 at the Exhibition Centre Liverpool and you don’t need to be an exhibitor to enter.
At the show, a judging panel, which currently includes Nick Hallissey, Deputy Editor, Country Walking, Alex Roddie, Editor, Sidetracked and contributing editor, TGO, Tina Collins, Editor, TentLife, Iain Duff, Editor, Camping, Gary Fine, Category Manager, SportPursuit and Ben Weeks, Senior Writer, Trail will vote for the three finalists in each category. The finalists will be announced on the second day of the show June 8, 2022. After the show, the online public voting will commence to choose the winners in each category and the overall Product of the Year. As in previous years, we will work in conjunction with a variety of partners who will reach a wide variety of consumers in the outdoor spectrum to ensure a cross section of the outdoors. Partners include SportPursuit and TentLife, with more to be announced shortly, and will comprise a database of around 1 million opted-in consumers. The consumer voting will be open until August 19.
The judging panel will ratify the winners of all categories and from these they will choose the overall Product of the Year 2022. The winners will be announced at the OIA AGM & Conference 2022 in front of 200 industry colleagues (September 7, 2022).
Prices start at £99 + VAT for 3+ entries for OIA members and/or OTS exhibitors and a single entry starts at £120 + VAT.
