Bodyshop Awards and 30 Under 30 entry deadlines extended

Bodyshop Magazine has extended the nominations window for our two annual awards initiatives until 31 May 2022.

While submissions continue to stream in through our online entry forms for the Bodyshop Awards 2022 and 30 Under 20: Rising Stars, we wanted to give you a bit more time to tell us about your favourite business or individual in the various categories.

Please visit the 2022 Awards section of our website to view the awards categories and submit your entries for:

For 2022, in addition to the Powered by Vizion – Bodyshop Remit Technician and Apprentice Awards for experienced and trainee-level panel and paint technicians, we have introduced two exciting new prizes:

  • The new Powered by asTech – Bodyshop Thatcham Advanced Technologies Technician of the Year is open to the UK’s best MET and multi-skilled technicians, who should hold a current qualification or accreditation at Level 3 or above in both EV and ADAS, validated through an assessed outcome and certified by a recognised awarding organisation.
  • The Environmental Trailblazer Award will recognise and applaud businesses or individuals who have gone above and beyond to drive sustainable eco-friendly best practice in our sector. While admirable, achieving PAS 2060 will not be enough on its own to win this prize; entrants will be required to demonstrate how their business is having a positive effect on the environment and on their community through sustainable innovations.

Bodyshop editor Simon Wait said: “We are very excited about this year’s awards, especially the two new prizes and the other 15 categories which can be found on our website. We hope this extension to the nominations window will allow for even more talented and hard-working individuals to be acknowledged in this year’s awards programme.”

The Bodyshop Awards 2022 prize-giving will take place on Thursday, 6 October at the ICC Wales and will see the return of our day-time Expo, which will showcase the products and services of our lead partners and other sponsors.

But until then, head over the online forms on and nominate yourself, a colleague, peer or business in one of the main awards categories or our 30 Under 30: Rising Stars in partnership with 3M.

And don’t forget, all entries must be received by 31 May.
