"There were some fantastic designs. We are delighted with the level of entries this year, despite members being rushed off their feet with increased business levels, leaving little time for activities such as these. I think this shows how important these Awards have now become for our members, and the PR associated with them is of tremendous value.
"Thanks to all those who entered and to our judges and sponsors."
