Kbsa chair Richard Hibbert says, “We are excited to be launching our 2024 awards, which are recognised in the industry for their transparency and integrity. All entrants are judged blind by an independent judging panel, and standards are exceedingly high. The awards are only open to members but with some great deals for membership available during March, it is a great time to join and become eligible to be part of the awards.

“Ronni Ancona is an amazingly talented artist and will be a superb host for our event.”
