ANNOUNCING The Junior Design Awards 2020/21 shortlist…

When we postponed the Junior Design Awards earlier this year we knew we had to bring it back bigger and better than ever. WHY? Well, because, 2020 can’t only be remembered for the ‘C’ word. And, honestly we’ve been overwhelmed as the entries, emails and messages came flooding in – seems you all wanted the JDA back as much as we did. We extended deadlines to ensure you all had time to finish those entries – even up to the final hours – but, now we can finally reveal the shortlisted brands, labels and products in the Junior Design Awards 2020/21.

Shortlisting is no ‘short’ job and a process that is never taken lightly,  it sees the Junior editorial team read, review and deliberate over literally hundreds and hundreds of entries. We understand winning a Junior Design Awards #JDA20 is a unique opportunity to grab a luxury award that is – and, still continues to be – the most esteemed accolade in the family lifestyle award arena, recognised by brands, clients and consumers alike

We have a really strong line-up of new, exciting, familiar and heritage brands that fit the Junior aesthetic – and have been bowled over once again with the quality of all the entries. Truly, there is some fantastic products out there for today’s modern families and children – and, we hope to showcase all the best of the best right here.

The final winners will be handpicked by the Junior editorial team and a host of highly respected judges for 2020 who you can meet soon possibly our coolest line-up to date, thereby ensuring the #JDA20 is unbiased, scored fairly and above all honestly. The judging will kick off mid-September  – so watch this space or follow us over on Instagram for more up-to-date information and news

But, for now we our really happy to share the whopping 300+ shortlisted names – we had to omit some categories, re-name and even split a few to make the final round-up a little stronger – we hope you agree with our choices…
