We all love to see other centres displays and ideas, especially at Christmas, and as Lockdown 2 and travel restrictions make that difficult what better way to provide a solution for everyone than inviting garden centres to submit their own photos and videos as part of GTN’s Greatest Christmas Awards.
Launch date: GTN Xtra 16th November and GTN’s November print issue
Publication of photo’s and videos as they come in during December in GTN Xtra and GTN’s December issue. Closing date for entries will be Monday December 14th.
Results announced: GTN Xtra 24th January 2021 and as part of GTN’s January issue which includes our first ever Christmas Products Directory.
We’ve created a list of categories which we feel reflect Christmas trading for 2020 and we have a team of expert judges on standby to plough through all of the entries and hold video meetings with short listed teams before making their final decisions about the winners.
There are opportunities for suppliers to also be involved in GTN's Greatest Christmas Awards by offering stock for Christmas 2021 as prizes for the winners. Please contact email@example.com for more details.
