How does voting work?
Voting opens to the public on 13th June 2019. All votes are placed through the Baby Awards website.
Our scoring system is transparent and honest – brands or products with the greatest number of votes in each category are crowned the winner.
Nominees will be supplied with a ‘Vote for Us’ button to be added to their website, email signature or social media before voting launches to encourage their customers to vote for them.
Can someone vote more than once?
No, voters are only able to vote once.
When will I find out if I have won?
Baby Awards 2019 winners will be announced at the Baby Awards 2019 Ceremony in central London in mid-September, and afterwards in the December 2019 issue of Baby magazine.
Ceremony details will be announced in due course.
Unfortunately, we are not able to allow children at the ceremony, no matter how small.
Will there be a shortlist?
No, all nominees stand the same chance of winning an award as each other. However, the Baby magazine editorial team will compile a shortlist from nominees in all 21 categories for the 4 Judges Categories.
What are the four Judges Categories?
Brand of the Year, Best Product, Best New Brand and Best New Product.
Who are the judges?
The 4 independent categories will be judged by an expert panel of industry specialists, high-profile mums, bloggers & celebrity parents. The 2019 Judging Panel will be revealed shortly.
Do I need to send samples?
No samples are not needed, unless you are shortlisted for the Judges Categories. All shortlisted products will be advised what they need to submit ahead of the judging in August 2019.
What’s happened to the Little London Awards?
In 2018 Baby London grew up and to become Baby, a monthly, national magazine, available across the UK. We decided it was time to bring all categories relating to the pre- and post-natal into the Baby Awards and maintain Little London Awards for those categories focussed on toddlers and young kids. Nothing’s really changed apart from the name, don’t worry!
Are the Little London Awards only open to London based businesses?
No, both the Baby Awards and Little London Awards are open to everyone, including online only products.
My product isn’t on sale yet. Can I still enter?
All products must be launched and available for consumers to purchase before 1st June 2019.
