Most of the awards out there charge an entry fee (anything up to £500) per category.
This significantly reduces the number of entries and means companies with deep pockets are disproportionately represented.
We only charge the companies who win the awards (overall winner and up to two runners up) which means more organisations can apply and only the ones who actually benefit will pay. This means there's zero risk in taking part.
We make the process sleek and simple so you don't spend hours on each application.
Quickly select the categories you're interested in and complete a 15 mins submission form.
No need to register.
Apply for as many categories as you like using the same simple form by selecting multiple categories.
We hold no award ceremony as this is typically used as a way to cash in on the nominees.
In traditional awards, many of the nominated companies struggle to afford the event itself (typical costs around £199 per person). They also find challenging to take time out to send representatives and pay for their travel expenses.
If you can't afford a trophy, or have run out of space on the old awards shelf, you don't need to buy one.
All award winners will receive a digital badge which they can proudly display on their websites and post on social media.
You can apply to as many awards as you wish across the various categories.
All 100% free of charge at ZERO risk to you.
And what happens if I win an award? If you win an award we’ll charge you a fee (see below).
Only pay if you win the top award in your category!
There’s absolutely nothing to pay! Only entries that subsequently win the top award within their category will be charged. Finalist (runners up) awards will be offered for each category free of charge.
There is no official limit on the amount of awards or award categories a company or individual may enter.
First of all, we don’t run awards in areas / sectors in which we may have a commercial interest in to reduce bias on our part.
Right now the judging panel is composed by a mixture of internal staff members and guest/external subject matter experts.
We follow a stringent scoring process which has been carefully designed to ensure entries are judged fairly and consistently within each category.
We are constantly reviewing our practices and procedures to further strengthen the process.
We score entries on a number of areas but the key ones are uniqueness, if an example was provided, quality of example provided (if any), likely validity of the claim and so on.
The best way for you to stand out is to be as succinct as possible while providing enough detail and ideally a specific example which is highly related to category.
If you win an award we’ll send you a private email (typically 45 days ahead of the official announcement) congratulating you on your achievement.
The same email will ask you if you’d also like to acquire an optional physical trophy (electronic badges are included).
The next step is for us to forward the payment options – payment link, bank transfer or 30 day invoice.
We are unable to announce you as a winner before we receive the full payment. Should the payment not be received before the official announcement date you’ll forfeit your award and it will automatically go to the next highest scored entry.
The applications deadline will be announced and when this is reached, no additional applications will be accepted.
The awards will be announced 30 days after the final deadline date.
We frequently launch new awards across additional sectors. The deadlines and scheduling may be different depending on the award so please visit the relevant award page on the website for more information.
We are not your parents and we don’t run a nursery. This means you’ll only get an award if you deserve it! :-)
Even if you’re the only entry in a particular award category, we won’t automatically give you the award – we’d invite additional entries instead.
We’ll never accept any money or offer of payment upfront (before you are offered the award).
Yes, we are VAT registered so need to charge VAT also.
