Internet Business Awards are simple to enter

Any UK company can enter the IBAs, including UK branches or subsidiaries of companies with headquarters outside the UK, their advertising, digital, marketing or PR agencies or consultancies, or e-commerce and systems integration companies, entering on a client's behalf. The website entered and the supporting submission paper must be for the UK market. Websites containing pages for export customers are also eligible.

There's special help for start up companies: any UK company under one year old is entitled to one free entry to the Internet Business Awards 2015. Simply let us know you are entering and we will waive the entry fee.

Entry fees

To enter the Internet Business Awards you will need to pay the entry fee for each entry you make. Inflation-busting in our own small way, the fee for the 2015 Awards will remain the same at £150.00 + UK VAT per entry (£180.00 in total). You will need to pay for your entries, online, at the time of entry.

What does the entry fee cover?

The fee of £150.00 plus VAT at the current applicable rate (20%), is an administration fee covering the personnel costs involved in checking entries and their bona fides, collating all entries and bookmarking them for the judges’ ease of access, convening the judging panels, supervising the judging events, including providing the venue and covering all catering costs, compiling the judges’ short-lists and publicising the short-list on the Internet Business Awards’ website, through PR broadcasts and on the online or offline pages of media partners’ publications. Businesses may enter as many categories as they have divisions or brands, though each entry will incur a fee. If a business wishes to enter each division’s online activity for an award, then additional entry fees must be paid for each entry made.

Payments via PayPal for Business

PayPal is a flexible payment system. When you complete your IBA entries you will be taken to the payment page, where you will be able to pay for your entries using any internationally recognised credit or debit card, or using your own PayPal account.
