Shortlist for SELECT Awards 2019 revealed

August 14, 2019


Discover who’s in the running for the SELECT Awards 2019 as this year’s shortlist is announced


The shortlist for this year’s SELECT Awards has been revealed after a record number of entrants put their
names forward for the annual event. The final winners for 2019 will be announced at a ceremony held at the Radisson Blu in Glasgow on Friday 11 October.


 The judging panel faced a tough task to narrow down so many excellent entries when they met at The Walled Garden on Thursday 25 July.


Copies of the submissions were sent to judges beforehand and they were asked to nominate their top entries in each of the seven categories. After plenty of discussion, the final shortlist of nominees was drawn up.


A round of face-to-face judging with another independent judge will now follow before the awards are presented at a gala dinner, where more than 400 guests will enjoy a dinner dance and top-class entertainment.


As well as the established categories – including best Small, Medium and Large Contractor – there are awards for Apprentice of the Year, Best New Product and Lifetime Achievement. 


Chair of the judging panel, Stan Johnston, said: “Judging was extremely tough due to the high standard of all entries. Each nominee has  shown extremely high levels of dedication, commitment and skill. We look forward to speaking to them all and revealing the winners on 11 October.”
