The AOP has announced its shortlist for the AOP Awards 2018, with voting officially open for 14 categories.
The black-tie awards ceremony, which recognises excellence in optics, will take place at 100% Optical, with finalists and guests enjoying entertainment as the winners are announced.
The annual event has grown since it was first introduced in 2011, experiencing a 75% increase in overall unique entries for the awards, which are sponsored by CooperVision.
Commenting on the growth of the ceremony, AOP chief executive, Henrietta Alderman, said: “The AOP Awards are all about recognising the variety of roles, and approaches within optics. Whether you’re an optical team raising the standard in patient care, or a practice that’s committed to innovation, we want to celebrate that, so 100% Optical – which offers education for the whole practice team – is the ideal setting for us.”
Ms Alderman continued: “With this year seeing more unique entries than ever before, our finalists have achieved so much by getting this far. I hope the profession will join me in showing their support and casting their vote.”
