Finalists announced for bodyshop Awards 2020

bodyshop magazine is delighted to announce the first group of finalists for the bodyshop Awards 2020.

With nearly 300 top-quality submissions this year, it has been a difficult job for our 15-strong judging panel of industry experts who rose to the challenge during an online jury meeting last Thursday (3 July).

A big thank you to everyone who took the time to submit an entry this year and the very best of luck to all the finalists.

The practical assessments for the bodyshop VDA of the Year Award brought to you by the IAEA and the six Powered by Vizion bodyshop Remit Panel Technician and Apprentice Panel Technician of the Year Awards 2020 will take place through to the end of September and the finalists in those categories will be announced over the coming weeks.

The winners of all the bodyshop Awards 2020 will be unveiled during our live virtual broadcast on 29 April 2021.
