The shortlist is here and now it’s time to have your say. Cast your vote for your favourite Irish businesses in Irish Country Magazine’s 2019 Irish Made Awards!

After receiving hundreds of entries across nine categories, the Irish Made Awards 2019 shortlist is here and it’s time to vote for your favourites. Our 2019 judging panel had the very hard task of whittling down the numbers to select this year’s finalists. There was tough competition this year, possibly the hardest year of judging yet, but once each category was scored, we were left with 81 of the finest makers, creators, producers and designers in the country. So it’s time for you to turn judge and place your votes with the companies you believe are the best in their field.

The winners will be revealed at a special event in September, stay tuned for details.

One vote allowed per person in each category. Voting closes 6 September, 2019. 


The Prize:

• The winners and runners-up will feature in a special edition of Irish Country Magazine in October.

• Each of the category winners will receive a once-in-lifetime prize from Kilkenny – the opportunity for their products to be showcased and sold in a Kilkenny store for a minimum of three months*.

• The Overall Winner will have an opportunity to attend Showcase 2020 in the RDS thanks to the Design & Crafts Council of Ireland; and receive an advertising package from Irish Country Magazine.

*Terms & conditions apply. The store will be selected based on the winner’s location, product type, etc. This will more than likely take effect in January 2020 after a degree of consultation and, if needed, mentoring from the Kilkenny team.
