How do I enter?

Entries are made digitally via Award Force, opening on 30 April. Judging will be conducted remotely, so resources must be provided in a digital format. 

We highly encourage video submissions as part of your entry. This is your chance to highlight what makes your product stand out and tell the judges the story about why your product should win. Video entries for winners will be showcased during the awards ceremony. If no video is submitted for a winning entry, we will create our own video content based on your submissions for both print and digital entries to use as part of the awards ceremony. You can see examples in last year’s video.

Nominations must be submitted by COB Friday 4 June 2021.


Submit your Publisher of the Year expression of interest by 7 May. More information here.
