Again, we want to say a massive thank you for your loyalty, kindness and support over the years. You are all awesome and we have worked hard to to make this shortlist the tightest, brightest and best ever! 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 Award #JDA22 is a unique opportunity to acquire a luxury award that is highly coveted in the family lifestyle award arena, recognised by brands, clients and consumers.

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 are some fantastic products out there for today’s modern families and children and we look forward to showcasing 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, thereby ensuring the #JDA22 is unbiased, scored fairly and above all honestly. The judging will kick off in late June and early July – so watch this space or follow us over on Instagram for more up-to-date information and news.

But for now, we are really happy to share the whopping 350+ 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…
