This year marks the 40th anniversary of our sponsorship of the Apprentice Decorator of the Year (ADY) competition and we’ve been celebrating all year.

It’s a fantastic event which over the last four decades, has given the rising stars of the industry a unique opportunity to show what they’re made of. We’re so proud to have supported the competition since 1979 and as part of our anniversary celebrations, we’re planning something a little special!

You may have noticed that we’ve been asking those who’ve taken part in previous years to share their photos memories with us on Facebook – and we’ve even created a dedicated photo album to those that we’ve received so far. We’re excited to announce that we’ll be taking this to the next level, by creating a special edition virtual 40thanniversary ADY yearbook.

The yearbook will celebrate the competition’s long history and will be packed full of photos and memories we’ve collected from the last 40 years, as well as featuring all eight of this year’s finalists and offering an insight into being crown Apprentice Decorator of the Year with an interview with last year’s winner. The yearbook will be available to download from our website from the second day of the ADY 2019 final: Friday 21stNovember.

We can’t wait to share the yearbook with you in November, and don’t forget to keep sharing your ADY photos and memories with us for the chance to be featured!

Until then, you can keep up to date with this year’s competition on FacebookTwitter and LinkedIn.
