Award Categories

It’s time to start assembling your entries. Whatever sector you’re in, and whatever story you have to tell, there should be a category to fit. You’ll find details of them all over the pages below.

In each section you’ll also find details of what the judges will be looking for and where they’ll be awarding points. Pay particular attention to this – don’t miss anything out if it counts towards the score – and make sure you answer the question as clearly and concisely as possible.
