By submitting an entry, you (or a company representative) agree to be available to attend the awards on Monday 13 July 2020 at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole. Please note additional charges apply to attend and the entry fee does not include admission to the awards.
Payment for entries
By submitting an entry to the awards, you agree to pay the entry cost, which is calculated per entry. Payment for all entries must be made online via card payment.
Judging takes place throughout February and March and the shortlist will be published on line in March 2020. Judging is conducted as a panel and no one person is responsible for deciding the winner of each category. The judges’ decision is final and cannot be disputed.
