FAQs

There is no charge to enter. Each entrant can enter a maximum of three categories (if a company is entering via multiple divisions then each division is treated as a separate entrant).

We are looking for achievements to have taken place between 1st January 2017 and 31st December 2017 for all categories apart from Outstanding contribution to the industry, which has no timeframe attached to it, and International alumni of the year - entrants must have graduated from 2014 onwards. 

The PIE will produce a shortlist of finalists for each award category by reviewing the information provided on the entry forms. A maximum of four shortlisted finalists for each award will be selected. The panel of judges, all of whom are independent of The PIE, will then judge the shortlisted finalists for each award category and select a winner in each.

You will receive an email letting you know that it has been received. You can edit your submission at any time up until the entry deadline by logging in to your account.

The shortlist will be announced the week commencing 28th May 2018. Finalists will be notified by email.

We will endeavour to provide a selected highlight from the judging panel that each finalist is able to use publicly.
