IDEA HONOUR ROLL


Each year the Imaging & Digital Entertainment Association Ltd (IDEA) seeks to reward by recognition people who have made an outstanding contribution to the photographic industry over a period of time.

GOLD TRIPOD AWARD:
IDEA believes that those who put their competitive differences aside to work with other companies for the good of the industry, deliver the strength and support of a tripod built of gold. The three legs of the tripod represent Purpose, Unity and Strength.

DEALER OF YEAR AWARD:
The Award for Outstanding Professionalism in Photographic and Imaging Retailing is judged on the following criteria – Superior store presentation; Store merchandising and forward planning; Appropriate staff training and skills; Timely account payments; Successful and cooperative relationship with supplier company representative and store manager/owner; Good customer service.
IDEA organises this annual quest to encourage and reward high standards of retailing excellence. Reps from around the country nominate their choice of a worthy recipient. From these nominations a ballot form is drawn up for adjudication by senior management of all the wholesaling companies.
