Invitation to participate in the Peer Awards and feature in our book
Great acknowledgment for you.

Your accepted entries are featured in the next edition of
the “Engaging with” book and are shortlisted for (and possibly end up winning) a 2022 Peer Award for Excellence.

For peace of mind and
in what we believe to be a further innovation for awards,

you can confirm acceptance before you participate, thereby removing the risk of possibly entering but not even being nominated.

There are no fees as such.
Instead, your participation and exposure are funded by your taking copies of the next edition of the book in which you feature and sharing these amongst your clients, colleagues and contacts, thereby helping spread the ideas.

How it works, in 3 RISK-FREE steps Hover over a box for details

1. Propose your initiatives

Your Ideas

With no obligation, tell us how you engage with and empower people in your organisation, amongst your customers or across communities.

We will come back to you shortly saying which of your initiatives we believe would be of most interest to your peers in our network. You can then decide how you would like to proceed.

2. Submit entries

Order & Entries

After you have confirmed your order, describe your entries with text, images, PDFs and video at our ideas platform.

So long as you meet our entry requirements your submissions will be shortlisted.

Your entries will feature in the next edition of our book.

3. Judging & Celebration

Acknowledged & Celebrated

Help us determine the winners by evaluating and sharing your views on the other nominated entries.

Your initiatives will be acknowledged in the next edition of the book.

Key facts about the process

Entry

What you can submit

Entries can come in different forms.

It could be that you have implemented an initiative, which can still be ongoing, that engages with and/or empowers people. Or it could be an idea, a strategy, or a piece of research, about making a difference in this way.

Or you may just have an inspirational video on this for us to include in the next edition of the book.

Deadlines

For proposals and for applications

We need all the entries finalised in time for the judging, the Awards Ceremony and the Book Launch to all take place before the end of 2022.

We expect to map out the chapters of the book based on the entries that have been submitted and to then encourage people to have completed their proposals by the end of the next month, and their actual entries by the end of the next.

Funding

About the money

For your idea (that is of interest) to be assured of inclusion just pre-order the requisite copies of the next edition of the “Engaging with” book, in which it will feature.

There are no separate fees for being shortlisted, being in the book, or attending the Awards Ceremony & Book Launch.
Optional extras are available, each individually priced.

Branding

Who can enter

Your entry is typically in the name of your organisation.

With the PRO Pack it can alternatively be in the name of the CEO (with a quote from them), can reference the actual title of the initiative, and can name key partners. All this can also be in the associated video/pdf.

An entry can be anonymous, but the organisation would be acknowledged at the celebratory event if a winner.

Event

Virtual yet Engaging

Enjoy lively conversation with fellow finalists for the same award category whose entries you will have already considered at the Awards Ceremony part of the celebratory event. and with others in the same chapter as yourself at the Book Launch part,

The event is due to take place towards the end of 2022.

There is no fee for a finalist place at this virtual event.

Vendors & Sponsors

Commercial participation

Whilst it is not possible to submit promotional entries, vendors can participate through client entries with a PRO Pack that refers to their products or services. A vendor can submit entries for award categories where they do not have a commercial presence.

A vendor that pre-orders a substantial number of books may have their own chapter in the book. They can sponsor the celebratory event if they are not associated with a shortlisted entry.

Optional Extras
