These awards primarily cover achievement and performance in the calendar year 2022, and entries should have a particular focus on that period. However, judges will take into account work that began before that period, as well as achievement and performance since that period.

  • You only have to submit a single statement explaining why you should win (up to 1,000 words).
  • Please also provide a 100-word summary. * Please note the summary of your entry will be published. Do use this as an opportunity to make a pitch to our judges about what makes your work innovative and bold.
  • Your entry should focus on the areas outlined in the criteria below headed “Submissions should focus on”
  • Please specify which private sector partners you do work with (if any).
  • While you have the option of providing supporting material, we urge you to do this sparingly, and only if you feel further evidence is required to back-up your entry. The critical information should however be included in the main part of your entry.

Stage one of the judging process involves judges shortlisting entries based solely on the information provided here, so please make sure this entry includes as much evidence as possible.

In stage two, shortlisted entrants will present their entries to a panel of judges for deliberation. This is likely to be in-person in our London offices.
