Once submission entries have closed, all businesses / individuals with at least three detailed nominations will be notified and required to provide a statement on why they are the best in their field and include an A4 landscape advert to comply to the printed image specifications in preparation of a potential win. This advert will not be judged.

If you are self-nominating, having a landscape A4 advert ready would be advantageous in terms of efficiency, if requested.
