FIT Show ‘Installation of the Year’ returns
FIT Show’s ‘Installation of the Year’ competition, which launched in 2017, is back for 2018 in a bid to find the industry’s best glazed installations.
New for 2018, entries are being invited across two installation categories: ‘residential’ and ‘commercial’. While the actual FIT Show will not run until May 2019, Show organisers have said they have responded to the industry’s enthusiasm for the Installation of the Year competition by making it an annual fixture.
And with the inaugural Twitter competition in 2017 receiving more than 200 entries and 1,000 votes, uptake is anticipated to be high in 2018 as fabricators and installers vie to showcase their best work.
From facades and balustrades through to conservatories and bifold doors, entries can be made via Twitter by posting a picture of an installation to @FITShow and using either the hashtag for #Commercial or #Residential – to identify the relevant category – accompanied by a short description of the project.
FIT Show event director, Nickie West said: “We were overwhelmed by the success of last year’s competition and wanted to maintain this platform to highlight the UK window and door industry at its very best. The excitement last year was incredible and we expect it to be even more successful over the next few months.”
The competition is open now and will run until June. Monthly prizes will be awarded to the winners in both categories, with the six monthly commercial and six monthly residential winners fighting it out to take home the overall Installation of the Year crown in each category when it goes to public vote.
Overall winners will be announced at the 2019 FIT Show Gala Dinner.
