Handy hints for completing your entry form

  • The title of your entry should describe the content and not include the name of your company or organisation with no more than 15 words
  • You may enter up to three categories with each innovation but will require a separate entry form for each
  • Ensure you actually describe how your innovation works (simple, but not always the case!)
  • No sales jargon please
  • Be specific to the questions posed
  • Remember to refer back to the judging criteria
  • Please remember that it is quality over quantity. Pay attention to the guideline words lengths
  • The description in question five may be used to describe your innovation in any general marketing and publicity that the institution does on your behalf should your entry reach finalist stage of the awards. This marketing will reach a very broad audience and needs to be constructed in non-technical terms. It should not simply repeat the entry title as the two will usually be listed together
