Easy to enter, hard to win

Here's what you need to know about to dispel the myth that entering the Event Awards will leave you with no time for anything else.

Entries are approximately 2,600 words long. Maximum.

You are not required to meet this limit, just don't exceed it. If you can answer the questions in fewer words, do. Bullet points are fine - the judges appreciate clear, succinct information, so there's no need to jazz it up with long descriptive passages. We do recommend proof reading though!

No fancy formatting

Entries are completed entirely online, so you don't need graphic designers or to be a computer whiz to submit an entry. All you need is basic punctuation and the Enter key.

No financials required

While you're encouraged to demonstrate how well your event or achievement did - record crowds or fundraising or brand awareness and everything else amazing about it, you won't have to submit your financials. All we're after is evidence to back up the claims in your entry.

Complete your entry a little at a time

You can continue coming back to your entry right up until entries close on 17 July. You don't have to do it all in one hit as you can (and should!) save your work on the Entry Portal as you go. Before you know it, you'll be done and in with a chance at Event Awards glory.

So why not get started? Also as an added incentive, if you start and pay for your entry before 13 June, you'll also get the Early Starters Discount and still have the whole entry period to complete your entry.
