the categories

The categories below are broad, and chosen by us merely to help organise the entry process. The judges will be looking at all entries individually and will judge like against like, moving products into suitable, more refined categories as part of the process. The category you choose to enter won't inhibit judging which is intent on rewarding the best products entered.
