The 2024 NAJ Awards Now Open for Nominations

The National Association of Jewellers (NAJ) has officially announced the launch of the 2024 NAJ Awards.

The NAJ Awards are an opportunity to champion talent within the UK jewellery industry and highlight the business owners, teams, and professionals going above and beyond for the trade and their customers. The NAJ want to recognise initiatives, individuals and collective endeavours and has refined and expanded the category format to unearth excellence throughout the trade.

The NAJ has launched five new categories for 2024 – Community Engagement of the Year, Innovation of the Year, Collection of the Year, Unsung Hero of the Year and Bespoke Retailer of the Year.

This year, the Supplier of the Year has also been split into two categories to recognise the work of product and service suppliers separately.

This year’s 15 categories have been grouped into three thematic pillars, celebrating Great Ideas, Great People and Great Businesses.
