Any products launched between 1 January 2012 and 31 August 2013 can be nominated for the Pest Best Product Award 2013 so get your nominations in now.
The Pest Best Product Award has become a firm favourite with pest controllers, distributors and manufacturers. It recognises the new product that readers feel has made the greatest improvement to their lives and/or working practices.
Pest associate editor, Helen Riby, explains: “Now in its fourth year, we have already had some fantastic winners. All products introduced commercially during the 20 month qualifying period, that’s between 1 January 2012 and 31 August this year, can be put forward, with one exception. Products which have already achieved a first, second or third place cannot be nominated again.
“So for 2013 that means you cannot nominate the 2012 winners, which were Barrettine’s Romax Rodent Seal, JJ Bio’s Birdfree Optical Gel and Lodi’s Black Pearl Mousekiller. These apart you can put forward as many new products as you would like and you can add to your nominations as the year progresses.”
For example, all products launched at PestTech last November and any new products that will be launched in April at PestEx will be eligible for the 2013 award.
As always Pest readers are in the driving seat. Throughout the year, Pest publications will update you on progress and provide opportunities for product nominations, before, finally giving you the chance to vote for the product you feel has been the most innovative – the product which has made the greatest improvement to your life and/or your working practices.
You can nominate products online or, by using the nomination form in Issue 25, the Janaury & February 2013 edition of Pest magazine. Feel free to photocopy the form if you don”t want to deface your copy of the magazine, or download the nomination page and print it out.
Nominations will close at midnight on 31 August 2013 and a shortlist will be drawn up. We will then invite you to vote for the product you feel has been the most innovative – the product which has made the greatest improvement to your life and/or your working practices.
So which product will you nominate and will your choice make the shortlist? Which of the short-listed products will you vote for and will Barrettine take first prize for a fourth year running? Only time will tell!
The mechanics are quite simple:
