With 11 product categories, a Good Design category and a Judges’ Choice Award to select during their judging day last week (April 3rd), this year’s judging panel for the Supplier Stationery Awards spent the day surrounded by the latest stationery product developments and ideas.
This is the first time the Supplier Stationery Awards have been judged prior to the Stationery Show but organisers were keen to give the judges more time to review the hundreds of products that are entered.
This year’s judges are Abigail Ball, Deputy Stationery and Card Buyer at Fenwick, Chris Lambert, Founder of Scrawlr, Debbie Wigglesworth, Consultant at The Paper Passionist, Katy Golden, Head of Gift at The Great British Card Company, Mark Hayhurst, Editor at Craft Business, Sarah Laker, Owner of Stationery Supplies Marple and Sidonie Warren, Co-founder of Papersmiths.
Hazel Fieldwick, Event Manager said, “Ably guided once again by chair Henri Davis, our hard-working judges gave up their day to review the Supplier entries – which this year came to just over 370 items.
“This year’s judging line-up represented a wide cross-section of stationery retail and they all enjoyed meeting and getting to know each other during the judging process.
“The judging panel will be on hand at the Awards Evening to help us hand out the Winner trophies – they did a great job for us, so will be good to give them a round of applause too.”
The finalists in each category are listed below and the winners will be announced at the Stationery Awards Evening on 30th April. All finalists will be allocated two tickets to the Awards Ceremony and will be contacted shortly so that they can nominate who they would like to attend.
The finalists include: COLOP UK Ltd e-mark, Filofax Clipbook Erasable Pen Range, ExaClair Limited 1928 Filing & Organisation Range, Durable VARICOLOR MIX, ExaClair Limited Tiny Roll Kraft Gift Wrapping Range, NU: Stone Vegan Leather and NU: Stone Flexible A5 Journals, Derwent A5 Bullet Journal Set, ZEBRA PEN UK LTD MILDINER, and Manuscript Pen Company Modern Calligraphy Gift Set.
