COVID-19 Special Commendation – Application form

From producing masks and other protective equipment through to developing tools to support children and their families in lockdown, companies from across the toy sector went the extra mile during the pandemic in 2020. To acknowledge these admirable efforts, a Special Commendation will be included in this year’s Awards, in addition to the usual sustainability, empowerment and future skills categories.

Companies of all sizes who were helping children and the wider community to deal with the pandemic in 2020 are encouraged to enter for the Special Commendation award.

Please take a moment to read through the instructions and make sure you fill out all of the below information correctly. Once you send through this form to us, you will be shown a confirmation page with a registration number. Please use the registration number for all further correspondence.

You have until 19 May to complete the registration and send it through. The more information you send through to us to ‘justify’ the registration, the easier it will be for the judges to form an opinion. We may come back to you for further information if something is not clear so it is important to leave correct contact details.
