Helping you Enter
General entry information
Entries into the Online 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 Online 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 described below.
Your URL and your written entry are the basis on which the judges will vote for and short-list your entry. The four pages should show how your website or mobile site met its aims, employed innovative techniques, was enjoyed by users, and delivered visitors, customers and customer satisfaction and a return on investment. At the beginning of your submission the following information must be listed:
- Category entered
- Title of website
- Company or business brand
- Entering company (company or their agency)
The Judges will need to access your business website.
(Please note that the web or mobile site must remain live or be accessible in an archive until midnight on May 26, 2016.)
Within your four pages you must use the following as sub-headings under which you clearly enter your information:
- Aims (for developing existing site / brief for new site)
- Strategy for online activities (especially if new strategy implemented during the period)
- Design, build and implementation, including information on creativity and innovation
- Testimonials / feedback summary from users, including most preferred aspects of the site
- Outcome, including formal evaluation of results, ROI, etc
Failure to include these details may result in your project being marked down by the Judging Panel.
Entries must be submitted online. Your URL to the website is probably all the support you need. If you wish to provide additional support material please provide a URL to a supporting micro site in your four-page submission paper, as well as the primary URL to the online business site.
The judges will want to feel fully informed about your online activity, so please include whatever you feel is appropriate and relevant for your entry.
Remember: it is always helpful to include independent evaluation of your site, such as a TrustPilot or feefo rating, or equivalent.
Please refer to the How to Enter page for full information on fees and payment, and please remember: the Online Business Awards are for businesses serving other businesses or consumers via the Internet.
Any website that breaks national or international laws or offends public, religious, national or gender-specific sensitivities will be disqualified. If an entry is disqualified for any reason the entry fees will not be refunded.
