Insightful integration with the local cultural landscape with the power to transform, elevate or highlight the profile of a neighbourhood, whether through an unconventional launch location, work with local creatives or inclusive events involving the community.

WHAT WE’RE LOOKING FOR

1

THE PERFECT FIT

There’s no point chasing after someone... sorry, something that’s not the right fit. Read each category carefully, check what we're looking for and tailor your entry to what the judges are asking for.

2

FIRST IMPRESSIONS COUNT

You only get one chance to make a first impression and whilst you know how amazing your project is, our judges don’t. Does your entry do you justice and make sense to those hearing about it for the first time?

3

MAKE IT RECENT

There's nothing worse than getting excited about a new launch, only to realise you're reading old news. Make sure your project took place after January 1 2016 to be considered.

4

LENGTH ISN'T EVERYTHING

All mouth and no trousers…? Big talk is great, but not if you can’t back it up. Show us how your project hit the brief and delivered results with cold, hard evidence.

5

SHOW US THE GOODS

There’s no point chasing after someone... sorry, something that’s not the right fit. Read each category carefully, check what we're looking for and tailor your entry to what the judges are asking for.

6

HELLO GORGEOUS

We’re visual creatures, so make sure your pictures are high resolution, tell a story and make you look gorgeous.
