OIA Awards 2019 submissions now open

The Outdoor Industries Association has launched the 2019 UK Outdoor Industry Awards, which are now open to entries from brands across the UK outdoor industry until the 22nd June 2018.

Following the same successful format as previous years, all products entered will be initially displayed to over 1,000 visitors at the Outdoor Trade Show in July, where a panel of expert judges will select the finalists in each category.

The finalist products will then be displayed within a dedicated area to over 90,000 consumer visitors at the Caravan, Camping and Motorhome Show in February 2019, allowing them to vote for their favourites in person, as well as online.

The 2018 Awards received 102 entries across the ten categories, as well as over 2,000,000 impressions on social media before the panel of expert judges including specialist outdoor retailers and journalists proclaimed Katadyn’s BeFree bottle as the overall ‘product of the year’ at the OIA Conference in March.
