The deadline for retailers to enter the Drapers Independents Awards 2014 has been extended due to the high number of companies applying.
The entry date for the awards, which will be unveiled at a glitzy ceremony in London later in the year, have been extended by a week to Friday May 2.
There are 15 categories in total – including the new categories of Independent Department Store of the Year and Niche Fashion Retailer – aimed at rewarding and recognising every aspect of the diverse independent fashion world.
Drapers editorial director Eric Musgrave said: “Picking one of those trophies up and displaying it in your store really puts your business on the national map. The first step is to get your entry in. To state the obvious, you have to be in it to win it.”
Independent retailers are being encouraged to log on to the Drapers Independents awards site and fill out the forms detailing the entry requirements, or contact the magazine’s awards specialist Lucy Trevor on 020 3033 2661 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
