Voted for Andy already also. John Simon's work does look smart though.

I voted for somebody I know, but who's work is good. But yeah you're right. Need nameless entries really and then reveal them at the end. And maybe a 1st 2nd 3rd rather than just a win.

It would only work with tilers. The adhesive firms will all create false votes like they used to with our annual adhesive competitions until I called them out on it.

Mind you it isn't rocket science so false votes across the entries will be rife.

All the entries are top notch work but as said my vote went to father and son outfit , Andy carroll.
Yes ive known him a few year’s and the entry was very nice work and if thats a vote for a friend , then so be it.
imho they deserve a win 👍👍👍

I'm gonna send a mass email out and help Andy Carroll but, as the email and will state (and as it did when we helped @MissTiler) people need vote for what they think is best. But it'll give them a nudge to vote for Carroll if they're undecided between him and another perhaps.

Please vote for Andy Carroll and Son Tiling – The business is well known in the tiling industry, and it’s one that has done a lot of good as a whole. They’ve provided advice on TilersForums.com that has helped budding tilers become awesome tilers. And then their advice has gone on to help other tilers become awesome tilers.



By all means, checkout all the other entries. They’re good. Vote for one of those if you feel those are better.



But as a forum, one of us people are one of the options available, and we would like to see you vote for us.



Scroll through the options below, and vote at the end. Andy Carroll and Son Tiling. – Your good deed will come back around soon enough. 🙂

He's one of the forum members that are in it - that's all it is for me mate.

Can't speak for anybody else.

He's a good tiler. But I know dozens like him. But he's in the comp, and I'd be up for him winning it. So sod it, he's got my vote.

I'd rather a forum member win it with our help, than somebody who isn't a forum member and nobody from our forums vote.

Also, TTA and us need to get on. And it shows us being willing to work together if we plug one of their comps and schemes I guess? - Not sure. Hope it does.

Neh, I think I see your side moreso as a guy.

But as a forum, we need show support when one of our guys enters something I think.

But I'm with you mate. As a guy, overly plugging just one entry isn't fair at all.

But it's one category, in one years comp, in one awards do, one year, for one website.

We're not going to break the internet doing it.

I hope @MissTiler managed to use her win as a Unique Selling Point herself and perhaps it got her some extra dosh one time. Maybe we can do the same for Andy.

Taking my forum hat off, I'm not silly mate, I'm the same as you I think. You're normal too. :D
