How much does it cost to enter?
For 2018, the awards are free to enter.
Can I start my entry online and finish it at a later date?
Unfortunately the online entry form does not allow you to save an unfinished entry to be completed at a later date. We advise that you write your entry in a word document and gather all supporting materials before completing the online entry form.
Can I amend my entry once it has been submitted?
No, entries cannot be amended once they have been submitted, which is also why we urge you to draft your entry and gather all supporting materials before completing your entry online.
What supporting materials are allowed?
We accept the following file types: pdf, doc, docx, xls, xlsx, csv, txt, rtf, html, zip, mp3, wma, mpg, flv, avi, jpg, jpeg, png, gif. Any links to websites should be collated in a document and uploaded seperately.
There is no limit or word count for supporting documents, but please avoid including superfluous documents if they are not relevant to the entry, as these may damage your submission rather than support it.
Remember it is quality and relevance that matter, and we want to see anything that showcases excellence!
Can I submit supporting documents that are written in my native language?
No. We can only accept supporting documents written in English.
Who are the judges?
The judging panel is made up of investment professionals and IR Magazine editorial team members. Keep checking our website for updates.
How will my entry be judged?
The judging process is made up of two simple phases:
Phase 1: Judges are sent all submissions for review. They are asked to score the entries for each category based on the criteria. The judges scores will then be collated and averaged, which will form the initial short lists.
Phase 2: For the second phase, judges come together to discuss, with renewed scrutiny, those entries that have made it through to the shortlist. This final stage will determine the winners and runners up, where applicable, in each category.
The judges scores will not be shared with nominees, however, comments may be published in articles or reports after the event. The judges are not required to make comments against every submission.
Will my entry be shared with anyone else apart from IR Magazine and the judging panel?
Your entry (including any files you upload) may be made public after the awards to substantiate your nomination. If you do not wish for your entry to be shared in this way then you should mark it as confidential. There will be an opportunity to do this during the entry form.
When will I know if my entry has made the short list?
We will inform short listed companies and individuals from mid-April by telephone and email.
I have a question that is not answered here. Who do I contact?
