The Henries Awards - Enter Now!
The Oscars of the greeting card industry!
Organised by Max Publishing, the publishers of our official magazine Progressive Greetings, The Henries recognise and reward the wonderful creativity of our industry.
The Henries Awards are free to enter and the form is very easy to complete. As all the entries are judged by a panel of many of the best greeting card buyers in the industry (from independents to multiples, bookshops to garden centres) this is a great way of getting your products seen by lots of great retailers.

While the entry form is self-explanatory, here are some top tips.
You can enter as many categories as you like - just complete an entry form for each category and provide a set of eight different cards from the range you are entering with each entry form.
There are awards for specific product areas eg humour, cute and art. Often there is a blurring of lines and ranges could straddle more than one category. It is completely up to you to decide the best fit for your ranges.
You can enter the same range in more than one category, but entering more than one range in the same category might split your vote and hinder your chances of being nominated as a finalist.
If you are looking to enter the Most Promising Young Designer or Artist category (and please do if you are lucky enough to be under 35!) then you will need to create your own ‘mood board’, this can be any size from A3-A1 and should include a photo of you, some brief words about yourself and examples of your work. Designers really do go to town on this – so don't hold back on your decorative skills!
And… most importantly of all, do enter!
The closing date is Tuesday June 25. All the entries should be sent to: The Henries, Max Publishing, United House, North Road, London N7 9DP.
Wishing you all good luck!
