The final countdown is on and UK jewellery industry professionals now only have TWO days left to nominate their bestselling ranges for this year’s Collections of the Year.
Nominations have already been flooding in with retailers, brands and designers telling Professional Jeweller which collections they feel need to be recognised in the third annual Collections of the Year event. Some categories are going to be hard to judge as many ranges have caused a spike in sales this year.
Deciding the finalists and overall winner across 10 categories is a two part process which allows the entire trade to get involved. The first part of the process is to invite all industry professionals to have their say on which collections should be crowned winners and finalists across the following 10 categories:
Accessible Fine Jewellery
This process is open to all members of the industry, with retailers encouraged to highlight their bestselling collections of 2016 by nominating a range for each of the 10 categories. Similarly, brands and designer-makers will be able to nominate their own collections and those launched by their peers.
To have your say please download this form to nominate: Collections of the Year form
Once filled in, the completed form can be emailed to Professional Jeweller’s editor at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Collections that launched prior to January 1 2016 will not be considered. Collections chosen as overall winners and finalists will not necessarily be based on overall sales and as such we encourage independent designer-makers to put forward their designs.
The deadline for entries is Friday October 27 2017, giving all interested parties ample time to send their nominations to the team.
After the deadline the Professional Jeweller team will analyse the results, and then posts the finalists online in November. The industry will then be asked to vote for the overall winners in a private survey.
