How to enter?

  • If the visitor experience you offer is in Cornwall & the Isles of Scilly, Devon, Dorset or Bristol, Bath and Somerset you must enter the respective county awards only, you will automatically be considered for the South West awards and do not need to enter here as well. 
  • When the 2020/2021 Awards open for entries, 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 2020/21 practice entry form(s) from this site when they are available, should you wish to draft your entry or look at the entry forms beforehand.  For full eligibility information on each category please refer to the ‘Eligibility’ section in the online entry forms, as these contain the very latest information.
  • Read the Hints and Tips page and then click here to create your account and 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).
