  • People’s Choice – voted for by the public via social media (by 13 Dec)
  • Gold – awarded to Independent and Chain categories

Judging is due to take place on Saturday 23 November, where windows will be judged based on presentation and creativity.

There will also be a People’s Choice winner, voted for by members of the public via social media.
