One of the important elements of the awards is the beautiful glass from Dingle Crystal. Although we won’t be gathered together this year to present the glass to our winners we want to be sure that every winner for this year receives their award despite us not gathering together for the presentation.
If you are announced as a winner on the weekend we want to be sure we can get your award to you as soon as we can and allow you to make the most of the press opportunities following the awards.
For our winners, we are working to arrange to have the awards either available for pick up in their county from the Monday following the awards or delivered direct via An Post. This will differ county by county.
In some counties, based on geographical spread and ease of access we have arranged to deliver direct via An Post.
In some counties we have worked with our colleagues in the industry to arrange a central collection point. This will allow a few things;
– Firstly, a space which is safe and accessible for collection
– Secondly, we will be working with local press in each county to arrange to have a photo opportunity to capture the moment when a winning producer collects their award.
Please note that some details are still being confirmed so check back here for final details
All winners will be sent details of photo guidelines so if you are a winner whether glass is delivered direct or collected we will ask you to share images with our PR team so we can share on your behalf with our local news releases.
Please note on the times listed below – This is an ideal time to collect as local press has been invited at this time. You do not have to collect at this time, you can contact us if you cannot make your time and we will arrange an alternative.
