Covid-19 Update

In response to the unprecedented situation of Covid-19, the SBID Product Design Awards is following Government guidelines and monitoring World Health Organisation (WHO) recommendations to take all precautionary measures to protect our team, clients and partners. In the case that it is not safe to host the event as planned, the SBID Product Awards winners for 2020 will be announced online.

How much does it cost to enter?

SBID Members*

Entries are charged at £250 per submission. The £50 admin fee is waived for all SBID members.

e.g.

1 entry = £250 (submission fee) + £0 (admin fee) = £250

2 entries = £250 + £250 + £0 (admin fee) = £500

SBID Platinum Partners are eligible to enter up to 2 projects free of charge.

Non-SBID Members*

For non-members, a fee of £250 applies per submission. A one-off £50 admin charge is applicable to all entrants, this fee is per entrant not per submission. One product may enter multiple categories but will be charged per submission (i.e. Project A can be submitted into the Surfaces & Finishes category and the Fabric & Textiles category, totalling a fee of £500).

e.g.

1 entry = £250 + £50 = £300

2 entries = £250 + £250 + £50 = £550

3 entries = £250 + £250 + £250 + £50 = £800

*all quoted prices exclude VAT.
