Entries for this year’s IBC Best of Show Awards programme remain open for just over a month.
IBC2017 exhibitors may submit a product for consideration by one or more of these publications, and may submit multiple products. There is no limit on entries, but please note that each entry will require a separate entry and payment.
Entries close on 4 September; nominations received before 1 September will benefit from early bird pricing of £365 + VAT per entry.
Prior to the show, all entries will undergo independent judging; those deemed to satisfy the entry criteria most completely will be placed on the Best of Show shortlist. The shortlist will be announced on 8 September.
NewBay Best of Show judges will vet shortlisted products at the show between 15 and 17 September, with winners announced on 18 September.
Any company that exhibits a new product at IBC2017 may enter. Products need not be shipping but must be shown publicly at IBC2017. If a product was shown in the same form at last year’s IBC, it is not eligible.
All entries will feature in a Best of Show Directory and shortlisted products will also feature in a Best of Show Supplement.
Entries can be made on the Best of Show online entry form. The following information is required:
• Product name
• 300 words describing why your product is innovative and why it deserves to win a Best of Show Award
• A high-res image of your product, suitable for printing
• The URL for the company that makes the product
• IBC stand number
• Contact details for the stand representative
For further information, the Best of Show media pack is available.
