Submissions must be made through the Infrastructure Sustainability Council awards application site.
The submission categories have overall word limits as well as limits for each question. Applicants should ensure they keep within the specified word limits as any entries received over the limit will be automatically disqualified. This will be strictly adhered to.
Each award has four application questions. The questions have differing word limits and weightings. Applicants should ensure they keep within these limits and are encouraged to consider the weightings when submitting answers. Higher word limits carry higher weightings for the scores and where judges are looking for the greatest impact.
Applications must include a minimum of three and a maximum of six supporting images. All images will be viewed by the judges and may be used for PR/marketing purposes. At least three images must be photographs and may not include logos or marketing collateral. Additional images may include graphs, maps, drawings, or material to support your application. Supporting images may not contain text apart from a heading or label.
The size limit for each image is 5MB with only .png and .jpeg formats accepted.
A short video of up to two-minutes is required to support your entry. Videos will be viewed by the judges and may be used for promotional purposes also. Videos should be stored on either YouTube or Vimeo and a URL provided.
Two summaries are required for all entries – one 500-word version and the other a 150-word summary. This summary will not be assessed but will be used for promotional purposes across various platforms including, but not limited to, social media.
This summary should briefly describe your initiative, innovation or approach, illustrate its impact and clearly demonstrate why it is unique and/or how it has impacted the sector.
Summaries should be uploaded to the entry website as two separate documents, appropriately named.
