The Education Resources Awards were founded 27 years ago and since then have been run annually by the British Educational Suppliers Association (BESA) in partnership with Brilliant Marketing Solutions (BMS). We now feel the time has come for BESA to end that partnership, and from 2025 the ERAs will transfer solely to BMS who will take over all elements of their operation. 


 ‘We are very proud of our long relationship with the ERAs, but it now feels the right time for BESA to hand the reigns over to BMS who will continue to deliver the awards in the future.’


‘I’d like to thank all the judges who have worked with us over the years to help make the awards the success they are, and the excellent suppliers, teachers and educators whose outstanding work these awards recognise and champion.’ – Julia Garvey, Deputy Director General of BESA and Chair of Judges 


BESA is pleased to establish the BESA Awards which are designed to celebrate and champion the achievements, people and teams who make up our amazing industry and are at the heart of BESA membership. The BESA Awards are free to enter this year, and the deadline has been extended to Friday, 10 May.
