How to enter the awards
Like last year, we’re keeping the two-stage process to keep entries shorter and more concise.
Entries close 17th November 2023.
When you register or login, we’re asking you to provide some initial information about your business such as company name, location and contact details.
You can then choose up to two categories to enter.
For Stage 1, there is just one 500 word question to answer and it will be category specific. This question is designed to help entrants focus on what the judges are looking for.
You can save your answer, update and amend it before you submit. You can still amend it after it has been submitted up until the 10th November 2023.
Stage 1 results will be published on or around 29th November 2023, and businesses that have been successful will be invited to complete stage 2.
At Stage 2, we ask successful entrants to elaborate on their original answers and take the opportunity to add more information about their business to assist our judging panel. It’s at this stage that our judges will compile their shortlists of finalists for the awards night.
Stage 2 results and our list of finalists will be published at the end of January 2024.
Finalists will be contacted to film a spoken commentary about your entry and what has stood out for the judges about your business. The films will be shown to the 600 guests at the awards dinner, should you be successful in gaining a nomination.
Any organisation with an MK** postcode can enter, in a maximum of 2 categories. Our team is here to help you so call or email us if you have any questions whatsoever or need help with submitting your entry.
