How to make a nomination
Please submit your entries in the following way:
•Name of nominee
•Title of article or publication being nominated and Award category
•Key reasons for nomination – no more than 100 words, please explain why the person, article or publication you are nominating deserves to be recognised
•Attach articles and supporting documents as pdf or word files
Submit all nominations to email@example.com
Please ask for a confirmation of receipt for all submitted nominations
Nominations are limited to 1 entry per category, in the event of a nominee being nominated twice for the same category the nominee will be asked for their preference as to which nomination goes forward for judging. The reason to limiting nominations to one per category is two fold. Firstly it is to ensure the judges are presented with the very best work. Secondly on previous occasions, when two nominations per category were allowed, this sometimes resulted in the judges votes being split between the two nominations and the nominee losing out when the scores were compiled.
Deadline for Nominations
The closing date for nominations is Friday 22nd June 2018
