The Coveted Dadsnet Awards 2024 Have Launched!

What are the Dadsnet Awards?

The DN Awards reward the very best parenting products in the UK, chosen by dads. As the UK’s biggest parenting platform that targets fathers, we’ve gained 2 million followers who use our communities for honest recommendations, high-ranking reviews and video content unpacking the products.

For the last 7 years, we’ve put hundreds of products through their paces to be able to recommend the very best to our growing communities. And this year the coverage just got a whole lot more appealing! Our team of experts, dads (and their children) are set, poised to test & award their favourite products with the increasingly recognised Gold, Silver and Bronze medals
