1 Choose your categories

Go to the Categories page and click on the category you are interested in entering. There is no limit to the number of categories you can enter but you must complete a new form for each entry.

2 Registration

You will need to register your company email here. You will then be redirected to a page where you can register your company details and enter a preferred password and answer a security question. We will email your password as this will be your login for the entire entry process.

3 Compiling your entry

Once you have registered, you will then be taken to the entry form which is divided into several sections: general information, financials, markets and space to make your "pitch". All sections must be completed.

The process has been designed so that you can complete part of the entry form and return to it at a later date to change information or add more detail. Where explanative information is required there is a strict word count. You will not be able to submit your entry if you over-write.

Remember that judges will be looking for examples of excellence, details of your strategy and your marketing, as well as sales campaigns.

You can upload documents that you think will enhance your entry by using the browse button to find the file and then clicking on Upload to attach. Files must not be larger than 5mb in total. Please upload a zip file if you are sending more than one document with your entry.

To save your entry and come back to it at a later date, simply click on Save and log out. There is a Summary page where you can review all the information you have included and make any changes.

4 Returning to a saved entry

Simply click on the My Awards page and you will be taken straight to the login section of the website. You will need to enter your email and password to gain access to this area.

5 Submitting your entry

When you are happy with the information provided, make sure you have ticked the Declaration box, which confirms that the information provided is true and allows UKFT to pass on non-financial information to sponsors and the media.

Once you have pressed the Submit button, your entry cannot be amended. When your entry has been successfully submitted you will receive an email confirmation. If you do not receive this within two hours, please contact UKFT on 020 7843 9460 or melanie.flood@ukft.org
