You can enter as many categories as you wish, but a separate form is required for each entry. Read the criteria on the website carefully before responding to all questions. Deadline for entries is 5pm on Monday 27th January 2020.
A panel of experts undertakes judging for each category. Lisburn & Castlereagh City Council has appointed an independent delivery agent who will form the judging panel for these awards. This panel will be responsible for reviewing applications of all award categories and interviewing finalists and deciding the winners.
Stage 1 of the judging process will be to shortlist submissions based on the criteria for each award category. Shortlisted finalists will be notified by Monday 3rd February 2020 and will be invited to take part in Stage 2 of the judging process. Please note that if an applicant is shortlisted for this stage, they must be available to attend a 15-minute interview/presentation with the judging panel, followed by Q&A, on Tuesday 11th February 2020 at Lagan Valley Island, Lisburn. The panel will then rank the shortlist based on the interview to determine the winner.
