Published: 8 July 2021 - Neil Mead

This year’s DIY Week Awards presentation event (#diyweekawards) will be live-streamed to a global audience for the first time in its ten year history, reaching more DIY industry professionals then ever before and providing increased coverage for the sponsors, shortlisted entries and of course most importantly the winners of these prestigious accolades. You will be able to join the live-streamed event in Thursday 15th July from 4pm via the following link: and we can now reveal this year’s entries shortlisted to win awards in each of the categories.


Despite the challenges caused by the coronavirus pandemic during 2020, we still managed pull off an extremely successful and well received DIY Week Awards programme last year, thanks to our sponsors, judges and of course all the entrants. Now we can’t wait to bring you the DIY, home improvement and garden industry’s key awards event in a new format for 2021, when the industry will come together once again in order to celebrate the innovation and achievements in both the supplier and retailer categories.

The awards event, organised by DIY Week magazine’s publisher, Datateam Business Media, is one of the leading occasions on the industry calendar, where guests come together to celebrate the innovative products and forward-thinking retailers across the home improvement and garden sectors. In 2021 things will be a little different as we take the DIY Week Awards online and live stream the entire event direct to your computer, phone or tablet, so you can take part wherever you are.

DIY Week’s awards events, including Britain’s Best Retailers and the Product of the Year Awards, have been at the forefront of best practice, innovation and excellence for decades, but this year’s event is not just about the prestigious accolades. All entries are thoroughly examined and carefully considered by our panels of expert judges, which serves to give the DIY Week Awards real credibility within the industry and makes them truly worthwhile winning.

As we lead up to this year’s live-streamed event, taking place on Thursday 15 July, here’s the shortlist of the excellent entries vying to win one of the coveted DIY Week Awards in the Supplier category…
