The UK leads the world in greeting cards, both in design and per capita send – The Henries awards celebrate this pre-eminence.

Named after Sir Henry Cole (who introduced the first commercially produced Christmas card in 1843), The Henries were introduced by Progressive Greetings Worldwide magazine in 1996 as annual awards to shine the spotlight on greeting card ranges.

The Henries Awards are the ultimate accolades in greeting card publishing, and each year some 14,000 cards are entered! The Henries award categories span the whole gamut of greeting card publishing, from humour to cute, art to handmade and everything in between.

The majority of the awards categories are for card ranges that have either been launched in the preceding year or for new designs to an existing range. The Henries awards are open to all publishers (or UK distributors), from the largest multi-national to the smallest one-man band. Entry is totally free of charge. 

All entries are judged by an extensive panel comprising top retail buyers from right across the retail spectrum including specialist multiples, design-led independents, small groups, department store selectors, supermarket buyers etc.

This year, in light of the logistical and safety concerns brought about by the Covid-19 pandemic, we have quickly and passionately invested in this new awards entry portal which means that all entries and judging took place online. 

The 2020 Finalists have now been confirmed via PGBuzz.net – click here to see the product category finalists, and here to see the service award finalists.

Online for this year only…

The Henries Awards 2020 will take place as an online event this year, owing to the COVID-19 Pandemic, but we remain excited that technology means that we can still unite as an industry, for a night of celebration and recognition.

Rest assured, the live event will return with aplomb in 2021 and be the best yet!

Please note that The Henries Awards is a totally free to enter event.
