Here are a few pointers on writing your entry:
Our awards schemes are based on innovation therefore all entries will be judged based on the concept of their product as opposed to taste.
All judges will be basing their scores against the entrants 200 word description they upload alongside their supporting imagery and documentation. This is to ensure that all judging is fair and that all judging is based on exactly what the entrant has supplied.
The judging will take place 2 weeks after the entry deadline.
All entrants that have been shortlisted will be notified no later than February 2017.
All results are kept confidential until the awards ceremony so that the results are a surprise for all.
If you do not hear from us by this time then unfortunately it means you have not been shortlisted.
