About The Henries Awards

The UK leads the world in greeting cards, both in design and per capita send - The Henries awards celebrate this pre-eminence.

Named after Sir Henry Cole (who introduced the first commercially produced Christmas card over 160 years ago), The Henries were introduced by Progressive Greetings Worldwide magazine in 1996 as annual awards to shine the spotlight on greeting card ranges.

The Henries Awards are the ultimate accolades in greeting card publishing, and each year some 14,000 cards are entered!

The Henries award categories span the whole gamut of greeting card publishing, from humour to cute, art to handmade and everything in between. (See Winners 2018).

The majority of the awards are for card ranges that have either been launched in the preceding year or for new designs to an existing range. The Henries awards are open to all UK publishers from the largest multi-national to the smallest one-man band.

All entries are judged by an extensive panel comprising top retail buyers from right across the retail spectrum including specialist multiples, design-led independents, small groups, department store selectors, supermarket buyers etc.

The Henries Awards 2019 will open up for greeting card entries in June 2019.
