How to nominate

Nominations are open to any team, organisation, government department, private sector organisation or business.

Nominations are judged once a year and should be submitted by 31st July.

You can self-nominate.

Nominations must be clear, concise and presented against all the judging criteria as shown on the nomination form below.
