Why should I enter?
Not only does being shortlisted (or better yet, winning) an Inspiring City Award mean recognition for you or your organisation, it is a major morale boost for you or your workforce and is a great PR opportunity both at the event and long after.

You must complete our entry form to submit a nomination. Head to the ‘How to Enter’ section above for instructions.
Can I enter more than one category?
You can submit as many nominations as you like across the thirteen different categories. The categories and the criteria for each can be found in the ‘Categories’ section above.

What happens next once I’ve entered?
Once you have submitted an entry, we will add your nomination to the judging pack for consideration. Once the judging has taken place, we will contact you to let you know if your entry has been shortlisted or not.
How does the judging process work?
All the entries we receive will be considered by our judging panel at the judging session in August. Please note that the shortlist and winners are decided solely by our panel and do not come down to a public vote or number of nominations received.
