Guild president Kaz Spiewakowski said: “We are extremely proud to have been shortlisted three times in these prestigious and highly competitive awards.  

“Together these reflect great credit on the work of the Guild team, and we look forward to discovering the winners in February.” 

Announcing the shortlist, the Trade Association Forum said: “We had a record number of entries for the 2024 Awards, with a series of shortlisting panels meeting across December 2023 to select the very best in each category to put forward for the final shortlist. 

“Congratulations to everyone who has made the shortlist – it’s a huge testament to the quality of your work over the past year!” 

The final judging panel will meet in the new year to decide the winners, with the results announced at a ceremony in London on Thursday 22 February 2024.
