The PaperAwards has added Best Stationery Design to its existing award categories: Exciting Use of Colour, Emotive Design, and Engaging Print.
Top Drawer’s show director, Alejandra Campos, commented that they were so impressed at the January show by the stationery products being submitted to the existing PaperAwards categories that they have decided to showcase their work with a dedicated stationery award for the upcoming September show’s PaperAwards.
Campos added: “From the great reaction received, it was clear that a permanent stationery-focused category would be a perfect addition to the PaperAwards.
“As such, we’re thrilled to welcome stationery brands to submit their work to a stand-alone category for the very first time this season, and look forward to seeing what will undoubtedly be fantastic entries for all of the PaperAwards categories.”
Judges of the PaperAwards are Holly Tucker from Not On The High Street, Emily Dunstan from Heal’s, Sidonie Warren from Papersmiths (pictured), Emma Clooney and Lucy Sumner from Paperchase, Molly Park from Oliver Bonas, Eleanor Gregory from Selfridges, Sarah Holmes from Pencil Me In and Emma Hawkins from Fortnum & Mason.
Winners will be showcased at Top Drawer AW19, which takes place at London Olympia from September 8 - 10.
Entries for the PaperAwards close on Friday 19 July.
