The nominations process for the PCR Awards 2015 has begun – if you want to be considered as a finalist in the Vendors category we need to hear from you.

The Vendor Awards focus on the core of the industry – the manufacturers and publishers which create the very technology and PC products that the trade works so hard to sell. Recognition will be given for innovation, commercial success and support of the trade.

All you need to do is email Andrew Wooden at awooden@nbmedia.com and tell us which award you’d like to be considered for, and a brief document on why you should be in the running. Feel free to include a list of achievements your company has made over the past 12 months, any sales increases, marketing info and more (see below for specific details for each award).

The final deadline for lobbying is December 22nd.
