Commenting, Warren Lomax, co-owner of The Calies said: “It is wonderful the way The Calies have quickly been established as respected accolades. Last year’s Calies attracted a record number of entries and the awards event itself was incredibly well-attended by retailers, publishers, trade suppliers and licensors.” As he adds “The Calies give true recognition of the vibrant creativity within the calendar and diary sector.”
