The Love Eyewear Awards will return in 2022 as organisers of the eighth edition of 100% Optical suggest the optical show will be “bigger and better than ever.”

Visitor registration for the three-day optical conference and exhibition is now live. The event is set to be held at ExCeL London from 22 to 24 January 2022. 

Returning alongside the show, the Love Eyewear Awards will be celebrating and promoting eyewear from independent and major designers, manufacturers and retailers.

The 2022 awards will feature 12 categories, including new classifications such as International Eyewear Retailer of the Year.

Entries for the awards open on 18 October and close on 5 November.

Applications will be reviewed and shortlisted by a jury of eyewear bloggers and stylists, with the shortlist to be revealed on 1 December for a public vote.

Winners will be announced at the Love Eyewear Awards event during the 100% Optical show on the evening of 22 January.

Nathan Garnett, 100% Optical show director, commented: “The response to the inaugural Love Eyewear Awards in 2020 was phenomenal, and the standard was so high that our panel of eyewear bloggers and stylists had an extremely difficult time judging the entries. We can’t wait to see what this year’s awards bring.”

100% Optical 2022 will also celebrate Love Eyewear Week from 17–23 January, aiming to raise awareness of, and promote, eyewear, and help practices boost sales.
