Loo of the Year Awards: Lepicol 'Home Throne Award'
2012 Loo of the Year Awards - Lepicol 'Home Throne Award'
The main Loo of the Year Awards (LOYA), introduced in 1987, recognises and rewards the very best in 'away from toilets'. LOYA has not previously invited the general public to enter their domestic toilets.
Aim of the new Award
A new category is being introduced for 2012, as part of our celebrations of the 25th Anniversary of LOYA, to enable the general public to nominate their own 'loo' for an award. Sponsored by our Headline Sponsor, Lepicol, our aim is to increase awareness of digestive health issues and the importance of clean toilets- everywhere.
Scope of Award
The Loo of the Year Awards - Lepicol 'Home Throne Award' - covering nominations from England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales will be awarded to very best domestic toilet entered, based on the opinion of the LOYA judges.
Any domestic 'Loo' can be nominated. This can be a separate cloakroom or a WC within a bathroom or shower room.
Nominations are invited now and will close 30th September 2012
No Nomination Fee
There is no charge for nomination of a loo
Nominations are invited by email to email@example.com with an image of
the loo attached to the email.

- Décor and maintenance - state of repair and attractiveness of loo
- Fixtures and fittings provision - quality of WC, washbasin, taps, cistern, hand drying etc
