Standing Out

Congratulations to Pili Pala, the winner of this season's Stand Out Competition, positioned on Stand VD7 on the Village Green.

Each season, brands compete for the coveted prize, awarded by a panel of judges for the most creative use of space. Pili Pala got a little help, from little friends, who had painted paper used to decorate the stand.

Huge thanks go to our judging panel - Laura Turner, editor of CWB Magazine; Tabitha Potts, Director of eco-friendly online store Mimimyne; Natalie and Lucy from Bambino Goodies; and Evane and Anne from Doolittle Magazine.

It's always a difficult task to select a winner, with so many inspiring stands around the show.
