The UK Plumber of the Year competition – held by JT, Bristan and Wolseley – has extended its deadline by two weeks to allow Britain's hardworking plumbers to apply to win the presitigious title. 

The industry-leading competition was due to close Friday 28th June but due to the high number of applicants, the new deadline is now Friday 12th July. 

With this year's competition set to be the biggest one yet, £15,000 worth of prizes are up for grabs for the winner, including two new incentives to enter that have been added for 2019. Each entrant will receive a guaranteed prize from Vendigo Finance, as well as be entered into a prize draw for a year long Checkatrade membership worth £1,300.

A full list of prizes is available on the UK Plumber of the Year website, including a three-day holiday to Cornwall with Proper Job beer (including a trip to their award-winning distillery); £2,000 of products from JT; a £1,000 voucher for Rothenberger tools that can be spent at Wolseley; and £1,000 worth of the winner's of Bristan products.

To enter, plumbers need to outline one job they have completed that they believe stands out as a hallmark of the quality of their work. Once the deadline for entries has closed, official judging partner for the competition – Watersafe, the online directory and national accreditation body for competent and qualified plumbers in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, will shortlist fifteen plumbers with the best entries. 

The public will then vote for who they believe deserves to be crowned the winner, with the top five with the most votes going through to the grand final, which will be held at Bristan HQ later this year.
