Toy Retailer of the Year Awards entries to close Friday 25th November

Hopeful retailers have until this Friday to submit their entries for the industry awards

The British Toy and Hobby Association is offering hopefuls their last chance to enter the running for this year's industry awards, with entries closing this Friday.

Retailers will be able to compete nationally in like-for-like categories and can apply in more than one category, if applicable. 

Retailers have the opportunity to bolster their entry this year by including up to three short testimonials from their suppliers as part of their entry wording. The British Toy and Hobby Association is quick to point out, however, that testimonials won’t guarantee a win but is intended to strengthen an entry for the benefit of the retailer and the judges when assessing the entry. 

Categories open for entry include General Muliple Toy Retailer of the Year, Department Store Toy Retailer of the Year, Online Toy Retailer of the Year, and Best Overall Toy Retailer of the Year 2016 for UK & Ireland.

For the full list of categories and to get your entry in head over to the online entry form page here.

Shortlisted retailers will be announced in December with the winners being unveiled alongside the Toy of the Year awards with the event taking place at Olympia London on Tuesday 24th January 2017 – the first night of Toy Fair.
