Nationwide plumbing competition extends its deadline for busy plumbers to submit their entries UK Plumber of the Year 2018 has extended its deadline by a full week to allow Britain’s hardworking plumbers to apply to win the prestigious title. The competition was due to close this Friday (29th June) but due to high numbers of applicants, the deadline to submit entries is now Friday 6th July.
The industry-leading competition, sponsored by bathroom giants JT, Bristan and Wolseley UK, aims to find the nation’s finest plumber for 2018 and recognise the remarkable level of talent from plumbers across the UK, with another huge prize fund of over £10,000 worth of prizes awarded to the deserving winner.
To enter, plumbers need to outline one job they’ve completed that they believe stands out as a hallmark of the quality of their work. Once the final deadline for entries has closed, official judging partner for the competition, WaterSafe, the online directory and national accreditation body for competent and qualified plumbers in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, will shortlist three plumbers from each of the six chosen regions (North England, South England, Midlands and West, Northern Ireland, Wales and Scotland).
The public will then vote for who they believe deserves to be crowned their local winner, with each of the six regional winners then going through to the grand final, which will be held at Bristan HQ later in the year.
