Returning samples

Should the entrant require them to be returned, it is the entrant’s responsibility to request recollection by 6 July 2019 and to arrange a mutually convenient time and date, at the entrant’s own cost. If no instructions are received by 6 July 2019, entries will be securely disposed of after judging.

Supporting Material


In order to enhance your entry you have the option to upload supporting material to your entry. 
 
Please note that for the Quality Awards categories, the name of the company that has produced a particular pack (with the exception of the owner) will remain anonymous, so please ensure the supporting material does not mention the name of the company.

- branded media coverage,
- photography,
- sales figures

Multiple categories

 If the supporting material is relevant to more than one category, it is important that you submit a separate pack of support material for each category. These should be clearly labelled with the entry reference code received in your confirmation email.
