Draft your entry

  • Prepare a statement explaining why the entries deserve to win. Spend time ensuring it answers, in detail, how the product fits the category criteria. It is better to spend more time on a few entries, than entering as many products as possible. Then, collate a few suitable images to go with the entry.
