The awards team will then check all nominations to ensure they have met the criteria for the category. Once these checks have been completed semi-finalists will be announced.
Once semi-finalists have been named, phase two of the awards will open on our website. Semi-finalists will need to complete the online application to submit their supporting evidence.
Every category has different questions so separate forms will need to be completed per category.
You will also be asked to submit a photo that will be used for marketing material and for the main gala event if you are successful. At phase two you will also be asked to upload a video and x2 written references to support your application.
Please note these cannot be sent separately and must be sent within the time frames listed below. Videos or material sent in after the deadline date will not be accepted.
References, photos and videos are not mandatory so please don’t worry if you are unable to send these in.
The information you provide will be used to contact you if your application is successful and we take you forward as a finalist. Please ensure all fields are complete and accurate. All applications will be acknowledged upon receipt. Please note the special category can be entered only by a finalist.
