What are supporting documents

The supporting documents are not a compulsory part of the application. It won’t count against you if you do not include any, but they can help to illuminate your entry.

Supporting documents could be testimonials, examples of press coverage, explainer videos, or impact reports, for example. These supporting documents can be sent to info@amsource.io

How are the winners chosen

Following the shortlisting process (which is done by the judges), the successful shortlisted businesses/individuals will be announced and personally invited to the awards evening.

Entries will be judged based on the answers provided within the application form and the supporting documents.

As with any judging process, there is an element of subjectivity around judging, so applicants should aim to provide as much information as possible.

Judges will review applications together during the judges meeting.

Winners will be announced on the night at the event and shortly after via social platforms.

How do I get tickets for the event

Once the judges have shortlisted the nominees, tickets will be allocated to those nominated. This is the hottest ticket in town, you can only get a ticket if you are nominated or are a sponsor.

I have some more questions...

No problem at all!

Application Top Tips:

  1. Sending the same application to multiple categories lacks focus and appears lazy. Nothing wrong with entering multiple categories but each application should be specific to the requested criteria.
  2. This is your opportunity to put yourself or your business in the limelight – don’t be shy. Be big and be proud of your business and/or your achievements, but take your time, keep it short, tight, factual and interesting.
  3. Ask someone else to read your application, preferably someone who doesn’t have much knowledge about what it is, or who it is, you are writing about. Ask them if they understand what you have written and if they feel it demonstrates achievements well.
  4. Don't miss the deadline!
