Entry Criteria

7 Simple steps to entering

  1. Visit our category page and choose which one(s) to enter
  2. Download the entry kit and complete the correct entry template (following the exact criteria given on the first page of the template)
  3. The completed entry may be accompanied, if desired, by a single piece of supporting evidence, in the form of a one page PDF, if you feel it adds value to your entry. If part of your entry contains video, host the video online using a service such as Vimeo, Youtube, Dropbox or your own server, and include the URL either in the entry template or supporting evidence PDF
  4. Make sure you have all logos of those involved in the campaign in vector format – .ai .eps as these will be used if shortlisted on the night
  5. Return to the website, complete the online form and upload your entry PDF, supporting evidence (if applicable) and a vector .eps or .ai logo for each partner involved in this entry (maximum of 3)
  6. Pay the entry fees
  7. All submissions must be submitted online by the deadline. Once your application has been received you will be emailed confirmation of entry along with a VAT receipt

Any queries should be relayed to Amy Brennan on +44 (0)117 990 2910 or you may email the team on events@performancein.com.

Entries may be made directly by the company or via an authorised agent such as their agency, technology partner or PR agency.

Entries may be submitted for multiple categories – there will be a charge for each of the entries submitted. Please ensure you use the correct template for the relevant category.

Templates Available

We have provided several entry templates to help you in the entry writing process. Though these are not mandatory, we recommend using them to avoid penalisation from any mistakes. You must follow the criteria and fully answer each section if you are using our template or creating your own.

Each category has its own entry template, and so please ensure you use the relevant one as the criteria can vary between different awards. We will accept individually designed templates, but please ensure your entry is no longer than two pages A4.

If designing your own template, please ensure you still use the design of the cover page we provide with the templates. This is essential for the judging process.



Withdrawing an Entry

Entries can be withdrawn until 27.11.19 and up until this date will receive a full refund. From this date, entries will be able to withdrawn until the 28.01.20, but the entry fee will be non-refundable.



Commercial Confidence

We will require entrants to supply objectives and campaign results (including ROI when appropriate) as our judges will not be able to measure the campaign's success with it, which may cause entrants to lose easily gained marks.

Due to the sensitivity of this information, all judges are required to sign a Non Disclosure Agreement. Any sensitive information must be marked for ‘Judges Eyes Only’ and highlighted in yellow.

Once the application period has passed, we will complete checks on all judges to ensure there are no issues for both the entrant's reputation and peace of mind.

For all questions regarding commercial confidence, please contact the events team on +44(0)117 990 2910.
