Entry Process

Companies, practices, agencies or individuals may submit entries on behalf of themselves or others and may enter any number of categories. Different projects from the same business can be entered into different categories but each submission should be tailored to fit the category into which it is being entered.

Companies based outside the UK can also enter, provided they have a subsidiary company operating in the UK.

If entries are duplicated by accident or in error, entries will have to be processed before a decision about their duplication can be made. Regrettably, any duplicated entry fee will be forfeited. 


The closing date for entries is October 31st. Except where indicated, submissions should relate to the eighteen-month period from May 1, 2013 to October 31, 2014. An entry must have been open to access by business buyers until midnight (24.00 hrs) on October 31 in the year of entry.

The organisers reserve the right to retain entries for subsequent publication, both on- and offline in ways that enhance the standing of entrants, supporting partners and the Internet Business Awards themselves. Descriptions of submissions from winners and runners-up will be published in connection with the Awards. Entrants may mark certain sensitive parts of their entry 'not for publication' (such as exact data, etc.), provided such restrictions are not used unreasonably. 

General entry information

Entries into the Internet Business Awards must be submitted online. Your written entry must be no more than the equivalent of four single sheets of A4-sized paper (12 point type, single line spacing) saved in PDF format (5MB maximum file size), uploaded from your desktop to the Internet Business Awards website. All entries should be uploaded following the template sections listed below. The Judges will automatically vote lower any entries exceeding four sides of paper. Please adhere to these basic rules of entry, together with any other specific criteria, which can be found on the Useful Information page of this website.

Please refer to the How to Enter page for full information on fees and payment, and please remember: the Internet Business Awards are not consumer-facing awards. They are for businesses serving other businesses via the Internet.

Remember: Customer feedback through services like feefo or TrustPilot are invaluable in helping the judges decide on the winners, so please supply any evaluation data you may have in support of your entry.
