iAwards Now Open for Entries

We are excited to officially launch this year’s iAwards! Each year we are blown away by the response to the iAwards and by the amazing entries that we receive. We can’t wait to see all of your applications this year!

We understand that it has not been business as usual this year and many projects were put on hold due to COVID-19. Therefore for this year, we have extended the time period in which projects must have been completed. If you have used any of Brett Martin Plastic Sheets products in your projects that have been completed over the last 15 months and have photos or video footage that can be shared with us to illustrate how our products are being used, you can enter the iAwards. Simple!

This year we are inviting entrants into the following five categories, which represent the diverse ways in which our products can be used:

  • Architecture and construction
  • Agriculture and horticulture
  • House and home
  • Visual communications – signage and display
  • Fabrication 

As always there are some fantastic prizes up for grabs. The winner in each category will win a pair of Bose Alto audio sunglasses, with the runner up receiving a Nespresso Essenza Mini coffee machine by Krups. There will also be the chance to win one of our Brett Martin goody bags. You will have the chance to have your application featured in the Brett Martin 2021 calendar, on our website and across our social media channels.

To be in with a chance of winning send us your most interesting, innovative and imaginative applications NOW!
