Confidentiality & Publication

  • All materials will remain confidential to the judges.
  • We do recommend that you provide as many metrics as possible with your entries. You can flag any commercially sensitive elements of your entry with the wording ‘Not for Publication’. The organizers will ensure that this highlighted information is not published in any form.

NB: Please do not use colour to flag but make it clear by use of symbols or footnotes.

  • The organizers strongly recommend that when submitting entries all appropriate permissions from key stakeholders have been obtained.

Supporting Information

  • Where your entry can be usefully supported with supporting material you may provide a maximum of three items per entry. Supporting material should be chosen with care. It should be relevant and enhancing to the main entry. You may include high quality digital photographs a short film / TV advert if you feel that this supports your entry.
  • Please bear in mind that judges will have only limited time to consider supporting material and so quality of supporting material rather than quantity is of importance. ‘Less is often more’. A summarized one-page PowerPoint might be easier to digest than pages of documentation.

Accompanying Company Logos and Images

Each entry must be accompanied by a high-resolution copy of your corporate logo together with one or two high resolution images that can be used to support your entry in the event you are shortlisted. Logos and pictures should be in Jpeg or Png format[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
