  • You can save and resume your application – just click “Save and resume later” and our entry system will provide a link to your application. Please note, text will be saved but supporting files will not, so you must ensure they are uploaded before submitting the entry.
  • Any images and graphs should be submitted as supporting information – not included in the main text boxes. You will be prompted to provide supporting information as a final step in your application.
  • Video content (which is optional) should be uploaded to YouTube or Vimeo and then provided as a link in your entry. You will be prompted to provide this link in the final step of your application.
  • These entry forms do not allow formatting. You can supply your application as a PDF and add this as supporting information on the final step of the submission process.
