How many entries can I submit?

There is no limit on the number of entries you may submit. However, you should avoid duplicating entries across multiple categories, tailoring the entry specifically to the criteria of the category you are entering.

May I submit on behalf of a client?

Yes, although their permission must be obtained and evidence of this shown. You will be asked to provide contact details of a senior person at the organisation. We may or may not contact this person.

What is the difference between the entry document and supporting material?

The main component of your entry is the entry document. All key information listed in the criteria for the category needs to be in the entry document and not in the supporting material.

Supporting material is optional and may be submitted in addition to the entry document. It should be used to illustrate/demonstrate what is in the entry document. Supporting material may include, but is not limited to: photographs, testimonials, graphs/data, videos (please send USB stick), hard copies of any printed material (e.g. brochures). Whilst supporting material is important and helpful to the judges, we ask that you keep these documents to a reasonable amount.
