How to enter?

  • Choose which categories you wish to enter.  Entries will only be accepted from businesses that meet current & relevant Legal and Licensing Compliance. The judges reserve the right to decline an entry if in their opinion this cannot be confirmed.
  • Download the practice entry form(s) from this site, should you wish to draft your entry or look at the entry forms beforehand.  If the visitor experience you offer is in Cornwall or the Isles of Scilly, Devon, Dorset or Bristol, Bath and Somerset you must enter in the respective county awards.  Entrants in these will be automatically considered for the South West awards. 
  • Read the Hints and Tips page and then click here to start your submission, you can save and print off partially completed forms.  When you are finished please click submit.
  • In all entries it is possible to include links to websites illustrating your responses or to cloud files containing relevant evidence.  In some categories you may also attach a file (eg mystery shop report) but our experience is that the best entry forms and ones that judges prefer are usually those without attachments.  Our recommendation is to focus on giving concise answers on the entry form and making sure you answer the questions.  If you do this then additional files can simply become a time consuming and unnecessary distraction for both entrants and judges (ie quality is more important than quantity).
