PPS Awards 2020: “There will be finalists and there will be winners”

Entries came-in thick and fast for the Progressive Preschool Awards 2020, while retailers lined-up to get involved in the online judging process for this year’s program..

Print“We know that the last four months have been difficult and the industry has faced many uncertainties this year,” said Rob Willis, director at Max Publishing, which owns and organises the Progressive Preschool Awards. “We’re certainly not kidding ourselves that events for the end of the year are hard to plan right now but as with any business we are ensuring that our clients get the service they expect – which in this case is a chance to be recognised for efforts and achievements in product, retail, marketing and more.”

With over 1300 entries across the categories, this year’s judges will have their work cut0out choosing the best preschool product from across all ten product categories. The PPSA 2020 entry and judging process has become entirely digital in response to the Covid-19 restrictions, with an online entry portal making it simple and easy for suppliers to register and submit their most impressive new products and ranges of the past year.

The product categories are currently being judged by an extensive panel of retailers and with this year’s judging also taking place virtually, the PPSA2020 judging panel has been extended to include product experts from right across the UK.
