We are delighted to reveal the shortlist nominees for each category of the Irish Made Awards by Irish Country Magazine. You can vote for your favourite business in each category below by selecting their name and clicking Vote.
There is one vote counted per person in each category. For example, once you’ve used your vote in the Food & Drink category, you cannot vote again on the same device (eg laptop, phone, tablet). Voting closes on Sunday, 6th August, 2017.
The judging day took place at day one of this summer's Bloom festival. Irish Country Magazine Editor Jennifer Stevens and Deputy Editor Klara Heron were joined by our esteemed judging panel, Director of Guaranteed Irish Brid O’Connell, food writer and editor Ross Golden Bannon, fashion journalist Ruth O’Connor, CEO of Bord Bia Tara McCarthy and interior designer Roisin Lafferty. The panel was blown away by the calibre of the entries and spent hours going through over 300 submissions to narrow down the shortlist for the public vote. Branding, design, place in the market and company website were among the criteria taken into account by the judges.
Now it’s up to you to vote for the Irish Made businesses you think should come out on top in each category. This is your chance to help an Irish business win an incredible prize. Voting closes on Sunday, 6th August, 2017.
Each of the ten category winners will feature in a special issue of Irish Country Magazine in September and the overall winner will receive an advertising package from Irish Country Magazine worth €5,000 and a membership and mentorship prize from Guaranteed Irish.
September 2017 will see our inaugural Irish Made Summit. Meet the winners of the Irish Made Awards, hear talks from leading Irish producers, take part in our speed networking event and hear from the experts on funding, entrepreneurship, training and more.
