2011 Concept & Innovation Awards are now open!

The BPA have opened its’ 2011 Concept & Innovation award programme that encourages product innovation within the nursery sector.  The BPA invites everyone with a nursery product that is unique, in concept or application, to enter the award programme.  For the finalists over the past seven years, it has proven to be a key channel for promoting and even launching their new products. 

Whether you are a student with a new concept that will challenge the boundaries of technology and design or an entrepreneur with a new product that will fill a gap in the market, entering the BPA Concept & Innovation awards will provide you with an ideal platform to launch your product.

There are two awards; the BPA Concept Award, acknowledging unique designs still in their early visionary phase and the BPA Innovation Award, acknowledging unique products developed to a potential production stage.

The chosen finalists will be given the fantastic opportunity to showcase their designs at The Baby Show for Trade held at London Olympia from 16th to 18th October 2011.

Past winners include Phil Jackson and Tilly Beazeley, founders of Jackson Beazeley Ltd who won the 2008 BPA Concept award for their innovative product The Wean Machine.  The company has experienced significant growth since winning the award and the product is now available in over sixty countries.  The 2009 winner, Claire Mitchell, founder of Chillipeeps, received such a positive reception from the industry that the unique feeding device is now in production and will be launched at Harrogate Nursery Fair.  These are shining examples of the Association’s endeavour to bring new innovative ideas to the attention of the industry.

Claire Mitchell recently updated us on her progress:  “Since winning the Concept & Innovation award in 2009, we received fantastic feedback from industry professionals across the globe and decided to take the product to market. Entering and winning the BPA Awards was the single best step we made during development.”  Chillipeeps will be launching their innovative new product at Harrogate Nursery Fair and can be found on stand Q28.

For further information about these awards please visit the Award section on our website.  To discuss the awards in more detail, please contact Julie James on 0845 456 9570 or Julie@b-p-a.org.  The closing date for all entries is Friday 1st July 2011.
