WhatHouse? Awards 2015



The 2015 Awards will be in their 34th year and are the most prestigious and longest established in the housebuilding industry.

As with any competition you really have to be in it to win it and whilst there’s no disgrace in not winning there’s certainly none of the virtuous circle of benefits that result in a successful entry.

Here are some benefits of winning a What House? Award: -

-       Third party acknowledgement of the hard work and quality products of your company

-       Encourages the industry to supply better homes, better designs, improved specifications and customer care

-       Gives a selling edge over immediate competition

-       Provides a great PR hook to offer local and national media good news local stories.

-       Award winner logos appearing on advertisements, press releases, brochures, letterheads, site offices, flags and all other insignia and merchandise

-       Extensive promotion in whathouse.com, all WhatHouse newspapers and ShowHouse

-       Great for staff morale and attracting new recruits. They’ll all want to work for an award winning business!

-       Buyers will be proud to own an award winning home built by an award winning builder

-       Suppliers will be pleased to have played a part in your success

-       Banks, investors and accountants enjoy an award winning customer on their books

-       Planners comforted that new homes on their patch will be of award winning quality

Judges of the Awards will comprise an impressive array of property professionals including architects, surveyors, designers and property journalists, all intrinsically involved in the new homes industry as a part of their daily lives.

Housebuilders, developers and housing association, large or small, are all encouraged to enter the Awards where there are 21 categories. From 2014 we are encouraging multiple entries by offering a fourth submission free for every paid-for three.

Deadline for receiving your submissions will be Monday 13th July 2015 so there’s plenty of time to make the best of the spring sunshine and capture some impressive photography to captivate the judges.

The presentation ceremony will take place on Friday 20th November in front of a full house of industry professionals at the Grosvenor House hotel in Mayfair. In 2014 there was a record attendance of 1650 guests.

If you have any queries whatsoever or need advice on entering, please do not hesitate to call Derek Smith on ds@globespanmedia.com when I shall be happy to help.
