For each category you will need to include good quality photos as outlined to support your submission.

  • Photos of cabinet displays
  • Any supporting marketing and promotional materials
  • Any supporting materials that demonstrate efficiency, team-working abilities, knowledge and presentation of staff, training and development of staff
