The shortlist for the annual Glass Focus awards has been announced.

The awards, now in their seventh year, will take place this year virtually on 12 November and will again celebrate the achievements of the glass industry and its supply chain.

This year, eight awards are up for grabs with two new categories introduced – The Rising star award and Marketing impact – as well as the British Glass company of the year awarded to British Glass members who entered this year’s awards.

Commenting on behalf of the judges, Nick Kirk Technical director at British Glass said; “This year the quality and number of entries has been extraordinary and a real challenge to judge.

"Given the current situation, it has been very encouraging to read and see some great examples of products, techniques, and practices from across the industry.
