Award categories and voting

This year we are featuring 11 awards within three main categories.
Two of the awards can be voted on by you – see below to find
out how.

You can also discover more about each award, what we’re looking for and how each one will be judged on this page.

Over To You

We love nothing more than finding out which of our products and Partners you really like,
which is why it’s over to you for two of this year’s awards.

Gift Of The Year 2012

It’s as fun to give as it is to receive.
We’re looking for products that were as much fun to give as they were to the person you bought them for. Which gift inspired the biggest smiles on a birthday, anniversary or Christmas this year?

Best Customer Service 2012

Sometimes really good service goes unacknowledged in the rush of everyday life. So if a Partner has arranged delivery to suit you, personalised a product even though time was short, or simply communicated with clarity and a great attitude, we want to hear about it.

Letterfest

Wendy Harrison has built her business on fabulous customer service. One of our busiest sellers, she’s always accommodating, happy to discuss design choices and will rush through orders.

Sally Clay Jewellery

Sally consistently delights her customers with free gift wrap and excellent presentation, as well as a speedy and reliable service.

nickprints

When we featured Nick in our daily deals in early May this year, he was inundated with orders! Many would have folded under the pressure but Nick just rolled up his sleeves and worked tirelessly to fulfill all orders.
