Taking place for the 7th time, the PaperAwards entries this season impressed the prestigious list of judges—that included the likes of Selfridges, Fortnum & Mason, The Design Museum, Waterstones, Paperchase, Heals, Oliver Bonas and Not on the High Street—so much so, that it was decided to increase the number of shortlisted entries per category from six to seven.
