 The closing date for applications is 23 August 2019, and commercial projects produced after 1 August 2017 will be covered.

 A panel of sector experts, which will include a representative of the IHMA and two invited independent judges (an authentication specialist and a promotion or design expert,) will judge this year’s entries.

 The annual Brian Monaghan Award for Business Innovation, given at the discretion of the Board, will also be presented in recognition of outstanding industry achievement and contribution.
