Just in case you missed it, although I highly doubt you did, the 2018 National Fenestration Awards finalists were announced recently, which means voting is now open and you can expect your social media timelines and email inboxes to rightly be filled with a plethora of media and marketing materials hoping to garner your votes and generally spreading the NFA message. Not sorry!
Here are the nominees in each of the 24 categories:
The biggest yet
This is the fifth NFA campaign and is the biggest to date. In 2018 we wanted to build on the now permanent and influential reputation the awards had worked very hard for. We thought that one of the best ways to do that was to shine the NFA light on new areas of the industry that we hadn’t yet focused on, or was being missed out by other parts of the industry.
So, we expanded the NFAs to cover 24 categories. This made the awards easily the most inclusive glazing sector awards in the industry. Something I am personally proud of.
We had nearly 300 nominations cast over the longest nominations phase ever. It started Tuesday 16th January and closed Friday 14th September. Nine months. But for me, this isn’t the most impressive stat. The most impressive stat for me was that we had 110 different people and companies nominated. The aim of the awards is to be able to represent and show off as much of the very best people and companies in our industry. You can only do that if you get more and more people and companies taking part, which is what we have had this year. Something that again I am very proud of.
What happens now
Voting is now live and we have already had a deluge of early votes. In fact during the writing of this post we have had whopping 631 votes. To put this into perspective, we get the most votes as the campaign nears the very end as companies get into 5th gear with their promotion. There’s nothing like a deadline to get people motivated! As we reach that deadline, which is 11pm on Friday 26th October we can expect the votes to flood in.
When voting does close, Winners Week will return, a feature we have had for the previous two campaigns. This is a week in which we drip-feed the announcement of winners over the course of one working week. This year Winners Week will take place from Monday 29th October and will end on Friday 2nd November.
There will of course be the 2018 Winners Event, and that will follow in early 2019. But for now, focus should be turned to the voting, and you can find out more about that by following this link: http://www.fenestrationawards.co.uk/2018-categories/
Good luck to all those taking part!
