For startups to established players, categories for The GWG Awards cover a wide range of lifestyle interests. Past winners include Great British Chefs, Sheerluxe, Touchnote, Biscuiteers, Bloom & Wild and many other fantastic household names and brands.

It's simple to enter our Awards (using the link above), taking just a few minutes to leave basic details and to complete the payment process. A website or app may be entered into multiple categories. The cost to enter two categories is £75 exc VAT and for three categories, the price is £120 exc VAT. This is a one-off fee and all shortlisted sites are invited to attend the Awards' Reception in November. There are no further costs.

This year, the Awards are opening up to bloggers and influencers, who may enter free of charge. Entrants will be assigned a relevant category by The GWG. At the Awards Reception in November, alongside announcing category winners for websites or apps, each category will also have a winning blogger/influencer. All entrants are automatically included in the People's Choice category, where the public can vote for them.

The Awards open for entries in April and the closing date has been extended to midnight Sunday 6th October 2019.

There will be an overall winner for Website of the Year, App of the Year and Blogger/Influencer of the Year, drawn from all the categories, along with the People's Choice.
