Could you be the Select Decorator of the year?
Have you gone above and beyond for a customer in the last 12 months? Or have you delivered a finish that exceeds even your usual high standards? If so, it's time to enter the 2018 Decorators of the Year awards.
Any job could win an award, and so you don't have to have worked on a major project to enter. You'll be judged on the level of details and skill, your professionalism, and the service experience. And, for the first time, you can enter international projects as well as UK jobs. All details of the entry criteria are in the awards form.
There are four categories of awards as well as an overall grand prize, and so you have plenty of chances to win. The categories are:
The deadline for entries is 31 January 2018, so make sure you submit your entry in plenty of time. Entering is easy; simply complete the awards form and return it to us by the deadline.
Winning not only means you'll benefit from up to £1,500 of Bonusbond vouchers, but you'll also benefit from the national recognition and the publicity such a win generates.
Last year's winner Peter Smith was featured prominently in his regional newspaper and it has been great for his profile, as he explains: "I used the wins to advertise the fact in the local press and I picked up a few enquires but it's amazing going around town and bumping into people who said I saw your picture in the local press and congratulations."
Winning also gives you exclusive use of the Dulux Select Decorator of the Year logo for your marketing materials to promote your award-winning status to your customers.
Previous winner Anthony Nolan says: "Winning my Dulux Select Decorator of the year award gave me a fantastic burst of pride, recognition and achievement. With more than 25 years in the business it's another positive tick in the box giving clients confidence I can produce finished work of a very high calibre."
Winning the award can also give you a renewed sense of pride in your work, as Andrew Sheasby explains: "It was a great honour to have been given this award for the project from one of my regular customers. It was also nice to hear the comments from the panel of judges about the quality of the work. I look forward to entering a better project next year!"
We'll leave the final word to last year's overall winner Peter Smith. He says: "I would encourage anyone who is thinking of entering to do so. I was glad I made the effort as it was a special feeling hearing your name called out at the awards ceremony.
"If anyone has done a project this year that they are proud of, don't hesitate, enter and good luck!"
