Online voting for the UK Outdoor Industry Awards 2018 is now open
The UK Outdoor Industry Awards give consumers an opportunity to select their favourite new outdoor products, and you can place your vote at
Not only can outdoor enthusiasts vote for their favourite finalists online, but they will also be able to vote in person at the Caravan, Camping & Motorhome Show (February 20-25 ). The finalist products from all 10 categories will be on display within a dedicated area at the NEC, Birmingham, which will be supported by the Ordnance Survey.
This is the final stage of the awards process, following over 100 entries being received across ten categories. All products entered were on display and shortlisted by a panel of expert judges (including specialist outdoor retailers and journalists) in July 2017 at the Outdoor Trade Show (OTS), the UK’s largest outdoor trade exhibition.
All votes received will be entered into a prize draw for 10 lucky winners to win an OS Maps 12-month subscription, which provides Great Britain’s most detailed mapping at your fingertips and unlimited access to over 1.4 million ready-made routes. The OS Maps app by Ordnance Survey was the 2017 winner of the Digital Product category.
