Could YOU be Johnstone’s Painter of the Year 2014?

Chris Green - POTY 13 Supreme Winner

Johnstone’s Trade is calling on all decorators to submit their entries to this year’s Painter of the Year awards ahead of the deadline at the end of this year.

With all projects completed between January 1st 2014 and December 31st 2014 in the running for the award, decorators are advised to submit any 2014 project they’re particularly proud of, before the deadline of Friday 5th December 2014.

The annual competition is open to all professional decorators, from large contractors to sole traders and family firms, and covers four categories; residential, period and restoration, health and education and commercial.

The overall winner will be crowned Painter of the Year 2014 – Supreme Winner during a glamorous awards ceremony, held in a top five star hotel in May next year. The evening itself is fast becoming a highlight on the decorating calendar and Johnstone’s will endeavour to provide tickets to this prestigious event for all those who have submitted projects, regardless of whether it is then shortlisted.

Earlier this year, father and son team, Chris Green Painters and Decorators, were presented with the top gong (pictured above), taking the title of Johnstone’s Painter of the Year 2013, following an interactive vote by guests at the ceremony at the Lowry Hotel in Manchester.

Chris Green of Chris Green Painters and Decorators commented: “Winning the award and being able to say we’re Johnstone’s Painter of the Year 2013 has been fantastic so far, opening up lots of new avenues for us. We’ve noticed a significant increase in traffic to our website as well as general enquires, including those from specifiers and architects, which is fantastic.

“It’s something that every small business should aspire to and I urge all decorators to take a few minutes to get their entries in. It could be you next year!”
