UK Plumber of the Year 2018 has announced it will be extended its entry deadline by a week to allow more hardworking plumbers to apply.
The competition was due to close on 29th June but, due to high numbers of applicants, the deadline to submit entries will now be Friday 6th July.
The competition, sponsored by JT, Bristan and Wolseley UK, will aim to find the nation’s finest plumber for 2018, as well as recognising the remarkable level of talent from plumbers across the UK. A prize fund will also be on offer, with over £10,000 worth of prizes up for grabs.
To enter, plumbers need to outline one job they’ve completed that they think 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, 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 should 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.
