All entries must be paid for prior to the judging day; any entries we have not received payment for will not be reviewed by the judging panel.
Each entry must be submitted as a PDF file. Files cannot be larger than 10MB.
Supporting links, videos etc must be included within the entry itself. This can be included as an appendix, with links or hyperlinked within the document itself.
Where a judge’s organisation enters the Transform Awards, that judge will not review the submission. Where possible, judges are not made aware of the identity of any third-party organisation that carried out the work until after decisions have been made, to eliminate bias.
All entry materials will be retained by Transform magazine, the organisers of the Transform Awards. Please do not send us materials for which you do not have a duplicate, as we will not return entered materials.
Ensure you have secured the appropriate rights and clearances for all materials and images submitted. The Transform Awards will not be liable for any copyright, trademark, patent infringement or for non-payment grievances held against entrants.
The entry information provided will be disclosed only to the judges, staff of Transform magazine and key partners on a strictly confidential basis.
Details provided within your entry will potentially be used for press releases, web content, and the winners book should your submission be shortlisted and/or win. Therefore, we ask that you ensure all the details are factually correct - we will not be liable for inaccuracies published based on the entry content and changes may not be possible after publication.
By submitting your entry, you agree that the materials may be published for the promotion of the awards and media efforts related to digital communications, as well as for the marketing and promotion of rebranding case studies and teaching tools.
By entering into the awards programme, your details will be added to our database to ensure you are kept up to date with the awards, the magazine and any relevant conferences. To opt-out, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please translate all non-English text into English to facilitate the judging process.
