The finalists for the Stationery Awards 2020 have been revealed! Originally due to take place in April to coincide with London Stationery Show, the awards have been delayed this year due to the pandemic.

The Stationery Awards take place annually and benchmark good practice and innovation in the sector recognising manufacturers, retailers and rising talent. For 2020 the Product Awards returned alongside regional Retailer Awards and a brand new Rising Star Award, with over 350 entries received.

“It’s more important than ever to recognise the wealth of talent across the stationery sector and champion the industry” said Event Director, Alex Butler. “We want to thank everyone who entered for their patience whilst waiting for the shortlist to be announced. We're very excited to reveal the finalists!”

The awards are judged by a cross-section of stationery retailers and manufacturers. As luck would have it, the team had always planned to take the judging online this year, so everything was set up and ready to go.

“We would like to extend a huge thank you to our judges for their time and expertise - their insight is invaluable” Alex commented.
