PR Agencies and marketing managers: Enter the PPS Marketing Award now…

The Progressive Preschool Awards 2020 are now open for entries, with this year’s entry and judging process moving entirely online in order to ensure an opportunity to maintain high entry and judging levels. 

PrintUK toy, nursery and preschool product suppliers are encouraged to nominate themselves via the brand new website and online entry portal that has been launched to act as the main hub for all Progressive Preschool Awards 2020 entries and judging for this year. The easy-to-use website will allow all entries and judging to take place online – a process that takes just two minutes to register and around five minutes per entry.

This year perhaps more than ever, the preschool aged product and retail sector has been continuing to invent, innovative and thrive, making it crucial that suppliers and retailers have the opportunity to be rewarded and recognised for their efforts over the past 12 months. Winning a PPS Award would be a positive end to a brutally difficult year for retailers.

The Best Marketing and Communication Award is one of the special awards and sees fierce competition each year, before judging takes place by a panel of high-level marketing experts. Previous winner Katie Gritt, senior social media, content and PR manager at The Entertainer said: “We couldn’t be happier to pick up the Marketing & Communications Award for The Big Toy Rehoming!  Our Environment is of paramount importance and the campaign aims to extend the life of toys; preventing them from ending up in landfill whist supporting the Salvation Army.  This has resonated extremely well with our customers and we’re really grateful to them for supporting the campaign and making it so successful.”

Now an essential date in the calendar for suppliers and retailers across toy, nursery, gift, apparel, publishing and licensing industries, the PPS Awards have become accolades to strive for, with the event itself bringing together the entire preschool sector for an afternoon of celebration.


Entrants into the Best Marketing and Communication Award are invited to receive free consultation on their entries via category sponsor Azaria PR who champion amazing marketing for the preschool aged product and retail sector.

The winners will be announced on the afternoon of Tuesday 3 November 2020 in the Ballroom of The Grosvenor House Hotel in London’s Mayfair.
