THE AWARDS 

Launched in 2018 and awarded for the first time at the British Shooting Show in 2019, the Great British Shooting Awards are designed to give much-needed recognition to the products, organisations and people that make the shooting industry tick.

 

There are 15 award categories, representing every corner of the market – from manufacture to retail to conservation.

 

Voting begins with a period of trade nominations, which are whittled down to shortlists of five by our panel of judges. The shooting public then votes on the winners, which are announced in an exclusive ceremony at the British Shooting Show.
