It's time to get your ­entries in for this year's Retail Cheese Awards, organised by Dairy Crest and The Grocer.

Our expert judges will look for counters with eye-catching appeal and knowledgeable staff.

There are two categories: best specialist independents and best multiple, co-op or symbol group store. In each, there will be three regional winners, from which two national winners will be selected. Regional winners receive £500 and national champions £2,500.
