The entry process
Please make sure you carefully read the description of the category you wish to enter by visiting the categories and criteria page on the website before submitting your entry. You may also wish to read the judges guidance page before submitting your entry. Complete your chosen entry form and submit it online along with any supporting documents and appendices you wish to include, as well as your company logo. Make sure you keep to the word limit specified for each category entry. Appendices are excluded from this count. We recommend completing your entry in a word document prior to entering online.
All entries must be received by Friday 1 February 2019. If you have not received confirmation of receipt of your entry by Friday 1 February 2019 please contact Francesca Horney at firstname.lastname@example.org
By submitting an entry you agree to be available to attend the awards on Monday 20 May 2019 at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole. Please note that 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 received by Friday 1 February 2019. You may pay for your entry online via card payment when you submit your entry, or upon invoice by selecting the invoice option when submitting your entry. Invoice payments must be received by Faversham House Ltd within 30 days of the invoice date or by close of business on Friday 1 February 2019, which ever is the earlier.
Judging takes place throughout February and March and you will be notified via email as to whether your entry has been successful or not in March 2019. 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.
