The awards are open to any UK insurer, Lloyd's syndicate, FCA-regulated broker, supplier, insurance institute, trade body or self-insured corporate. All categories are open to those from operational and technical areas. Entries in some categories are also open to services providers, including loss adjusters, law firms or technology vendors.
Carefully read the entry criteria to ensure that you are entering the most appropriate categories.Some categories are open to individuals, others to departments/teams. You may enter more than one project, programme or individual into a category, but make it clear precisely who or what part of the company is being nominated.
- Covering statement and evidence
Entries can refer to supporting material (see below) that has been included, but remember to keep to a simple formula of statement first, background second.
Entries MUST include a clear statement of objectives and targets supported by evidence that these targets were reached. If these targets are to externally set standards, they should be stated with an indication of how achievement has been measured. In other categories, business growth may be the target. Again, this should be clear and the achievement of it demonstrated in measurable terms.
When entering "of the Year" categories, the judges will be reviewing projects that have come to fruition (with measurable results) over the previous 12-18 months. All the information contained in the entries and marked confidential will remain so, and will not be released without the permission of the entrant.
All entries must be made using the official online entry system. Supplementary information including charts, graphs, photos and info-boxes must be included as supporting material NOT included on the entry form.
- Supporting material
When preparing any background material and supporting evidence, it is quality and relevance that matter, not quantity. Therefore, a maximum of three supporting attachments can be included.
So if a marketing campaign's success is being partially judged on media coverage, include links to examples of that coverage.
Research documents, customer brochures, staff newsletters and training manuals all help demonstrate to the judges in a practical way what the entrant has achieved and should be included where relevant.
The judges will also review relevant websites, so full addresses and access codes should be provided.
Your entry must avoid including superfluous documents and PDFs as these may damage your submission rather than supporting it.
