Please check the entry form and entry guide to ensure you’re ready to upload your entry.

PREPARE YOUR ONE-PAGER & RESULTS DOCUMENTS

Two documents need to be submitted with each entry—a “one-pager” summary and a “Results” document that clearly prove the success of your entry (some categories do not require results please read the relevant category criteria).


Failure to produce compelling motivations will limit your entry’s chance of winning. The basic structure of a “one-pager” should include your brief/objective and information based on the category entry criteria.
