For the best finalist experience, we recommend purchasing tickets and celebrating with your team. If you don’t reserve any tickets, only one representative from your company will be able to join the event to present your entries to the judging panel. Access to open presentations from other finalists, networking and the Awards Ceremony is exclusively reserved for ticket holders. Any winners who have not purchased tickets will be charged if they choose to receive a customized trophy.

Each company can enter up to 10 categories. If you feel your work is relevant to more than one category, you can submit the same initiative into multiple categories.

Additional information is in the Plan2Win document, which gives you advice on category selection and writing a winning entry. You can also visit our Enter Now page. We also offer a series of webinars from previous winners and awards experts. You can ask specific questions about choosing the right category, structuring your submission, and anything else to help with your entry!

The scoring criteria are the same for the written entry form and the presentation. Take a look so you know what to expect. Be sure to address all of them in your entry!

The entry form should be submitted through our online portal by the submission deadline on October 27. Once you enter the awards and receive your login details via email, you can access your entry form. From the moment you receive your login details, you can start working on your submission. As you finish each section, make sure you save your progress, and only click the ‘submit’ button when it’s fully complete!

Every category is assessed by independent business professionals who apply to judge with us. We also appoint a Chair of Judges in each category – their job is to ensure that all presentations are kept to time. After the event, you will receive their comments on your written entry and live presentation in a bespoke feedback report. To find out who’s judging this year, visit our Meet the Judges page.

We will announce all the finalists in November. Those who have been shortlisted will deliver an online presentation at the Awards Finals in February.
