Celebrating producers

Winning any medal at the IWSC is a fantastic achievement and for producers who are particularly successful within their category, they are shortlisted for our Producer of the Year awards. New for the IWSC, the shortlisted producers are being sent a short questionnaire to provide our Judging Committee members with more background detail about what is going on behind the scenes.

The Judging Committee will then use the information provided in these forms to decide an overall winner. This year our winners will be announced at our Awards Dinner & Industry Celebration on Thursday 29 September at the Roundhouse, London.
