Chris Bennett: Time for Optician Awards mode

Optician Awards has become a pre-Christmas celebration, get your entries in now

With Glastonbury festival-goers still scraping the last vestiges of mud from their designer wellies, the eagle-eyed among you may well be surprised to see a call for entries to the Optician Awards.

It’s not just the Pilton pack whose fun has suffered an interregnum; we’re all slowly getting our calendars, and body clocks, back in synch following the pandemic. Milestones in the year, once familiar, have been skipped and moved as we welcome back opportunities to meet up with old friends and colleagues.

Post-pandemic, the Optician Awards night has become a pre-Christmas celebration in a move from its old date in April, where it sat alongside Optrafair. That means that the summer is now the time to log onto opticianawards.co.uk and peruse the categories on offer to get your entry in before the August 29 deadline.

As well as the evergreen core categories, this year sees a rejig of our sustainability category, sponsored by CooperVision. This winner will receive a unique trophy, artisan-made from recycled materials. More on that at a later date.
