How to enter

The main component of your entry is an ‘entry document’ of no more than 1000 words. This should be uploaded as a Microsoft Word document, and the filename must be “ENTRY DOCUMENT”.

Each entry must be submitted online using the online entry system. You will be asked to register after which you can choose the categories you wish to enter and follow the on-screen instructions. Once you have completed the work on your entries, you can submit them all at once. The online entry system allows you to start an entry, save it, and complete it at a later date.

Deadline for entries is Tuesday 3rd January 2017

Each category has specific criteria. Please familiarise yourself with the criteria ahead of starting your entry online.
