OTHER THINGS TO KNOW There is a lot going on with the NFAs right now. So here is a quick run through of all the things ongoing and a brief announcements list that should prepare you for a glut of NFA news about to hit your timelines. COOL WALL The 2017 Cool Wall is looking awesome right now. There has been a crazy high quality to the submissions throughout this year. To catch up on all the monthly winners so far, follow this link: www.fenestrationawards.co.uk/2017-cool-wall. The September Cool Wall, sponsored by Clayton Glass and Prefix Systems, is still live and there remains plenty of time to either upload your own work to be voted on, or to cast your own votes on the installations already live and decide this month’s winner. You can do that here: www.fenestrationawards.co.uk/september- 2017-cool-wall. NEW VOTING SYSTEM As I mentioned above, we will be using a new voting system for this year’s campaign. We can’t say too much right now, but the new system intends to make voting even easier for everyone. Crucially, we will be dropping the requirement for people to be logged in to the website for the very first time. The intention is to make voting in this year’s NFAs as accessible as possible. Instead, we will be using a new authentication process to protect the voting process. If it works well this year, we will carry it on to future campaigns.
NEW SPONSORS We have a couple of announcements to come this week (hopefully), which will unveil two new #NFA17 main sponsorships. Stay tuned! DIGITAL MAGAZINE Last month you may have seen our trial of our new monthly digital magazine, simply called NFA Digital. It is a brand new media platform within the NFA ecosystem which is designed to bring all the latest NFA news and announcements, guest editorials, sponsor’s news and PR right to your inbox. We have had some great feedback after our first one at the end of August, so you can expect the September edition coming in the next couple of days. You can expect to see a library of editions on the NFA website very soon. More on NFA Digital and how you can get involved with that will be available on the NFA website soon. VOTING PHASE These are the dates you need to know for the upcoming voting phase and what happens after: • Voting phase: Thursday 5th October – Thursday 30th November • Winners Week: Monday 4th December – Thursday 7th December There is plenty going on right now, and it is your participation that is key to making it all work. The National Fenestration Awards remains the UK glazing industry’s only independent awards platform where everyone from every sector of the industry can be part of the process from start to finish. To get involved, go to the NFA website and be part of it all: www.fenestrationawards.co.uk.
