Record-breaking number of entries for #sandford2017
The 2017 Sandford St Martin Awards have attracted an unprecedented 178 entries - more than twice as many as there were in 2010 and a 25% increase on last year.

Thank you and best of luck to everyone who entered. Shortlists will be published on March 17, 2017.
