GIMA Awards Judging

Following a busy day of judging at Warwick Racecourse (20th June), where around 170 entries were considered, the winners of the 39th annual GIMA Awards have now been confirmed. However, the garden retail industry has to wait a few more weeks to find out who wins, when this year’s winners are revealed on July 4th at the five-star Celtic Manor Resort.

The 2019 judges certainly had some tough choices to make. With over 170 products, services and campaigns fighting it out to receive the highly respected accolade of GIMA award winner, it was safe to say that the competition was tight.
