I love it when he Amazon has a free competition that recognizes small and medium businesses, but i don t like the fact that only companies who have their own brand can enter. there is a huge number of small business people here who sells on OTHER peoples brands and so it seems we cannot enter.
i mean it Amazon`s money, but why not open another competition where you as a small company gets help to promote and run their business.
not all of us have the resources to start a brand. however, i hope someone wins the prize and buys a new lock up or unit (or sports car).

Is this the real reason for these awards… or is this so that Amazon can get lots of new product ideas for free which they will then steal and produce their own versions of?

Excuse my cynicism but Amazon do have a reputation for using their sellers as guinea pigs.

And why are these awards only for European and UK sellers?

If Amazon don’t rip these innovations off themselves, is there perhaps another possibliity? Are they hoping that their friends from outside Europe will do it instead?

Given Amazon’s lack of support for brands, I personally would be very wary about launching a new innovation on Amazon.
