Frequently Asked Questions
How do I become a Finalist?
During the first phase of judging (15th October to 15th November) there are two paths to the final:
Firstly, the top three TOTAL scores during this period, will progress to the final (so an advantage to enter early)
Secondly, the top two AVERAGE scores during this period will also progress to the final.
When is the deadline to enter?
We accept entries right up to the 15th November. One of the most negative comments we have heard about award programs in general is missing the entry date.
There are advantages to entering early, as it gives you more time to accumulate more total points.
Does my entry need to be created in the past 12 months?
Can we do a joint entry/case study or bring in a third party?
Can I enter/win in more than one category?
What needs to be in the entry video?
This can be whatever you want it to be – We simply want to see a WOW moment.’ We want you to put together an ‘elevator pitch’ to convey your message.
Why you should win in your category, summed up in an easy way to understand. So even if the judges weren’t an ‘expert’ in that space, they would even watch it and think ‘WOW, that’s pretty cool!’
Whether you wanted to keep it a simple and direct message to the camera or include a bunch of graphics, edits and b-roll is completely up to you.
Can I use a previous video?
Absolutely – as long as it is four minutes or under. If you have a five-minute explainer video, then if you can edit this down to four minutes – submit away! If you have a three min case study video, do submit it.
The important thing is that it is clear to understand your process or product, and it showcases a WOW moment!
Are you having an In-Person Awards Ceremony?
Yes. This will be on the 29th November at Old Billingsgate. If there are no covid restrictions, we can have up to 1,200 seats. If there is a rule similar to the “rule of six” we can have up to 500 seats with barriers in place.
How much are tickets?
If you make it into the finals, the entrant will be given two free tickets to the awards ceremony. The rest of the tickets will be available in the coming weeks
Can I attend even if I don’t make the finals?
What if I can’t attend in person?
Irrelevant of any Covid restrictons, there will be a full livestream from Old Billingsgate. We will also be able to have a live video stream direct to finalists unable to attend
