Key Dates:

  • Entry deadline: Strictly Tuesday, 7 March 2023 noon – no extensions

  • Awards Ceremony: 16 June 2023

Top Tips:

  • Provide detailed information on target audiences and consider using personas.
  • Don’t leave out requested information eg sample media releases. Judges can’t give points for neglected sections.
  • Do not use AVEs as a form of Measurement.
  • Don’t assume any prior knowledge on the part of the Judges i.e. explain the context of the work.
  • Be explicit about what is special, and what is excellent, about your entry.
