FAQs

alt
CAN I ENTER MORE THAN ONE CATEGORY? IF SO, DO I NEED TO SUBMIT MORE THAN ONE PDF?

There is no limit to the number of categories that can be entered. If multiple categories are being entered, multiple PDFs must be submitted. As our entry form only allows one PDF to be entered at a time, you will need to go the form for each new entry, ensuring you change the category field. Although not compulsory, we strongly recommend tailoring each submission according to the category being entered – this will make your work stand out to the judges!

 

I AM NOT SURE WHICH CATEGORY TO ENTER. HOW SHOULD I DECIDE?

Please contact Melanie Han at mhan@transformmagazine.net or +44 (0)20 3950 5356 for any queries and advice on categories when entering.

WHAT IS THE TIME FRAME FOR ELIGIBLE WORK? CAN I ENTER WORK FROM THE LAST YEAR?

Any organisation can enter the Transform Awards, providing the strategy or execution was developed, launched or carried out in the 18 months prior to the entry deadline. The eligibility and rules section on the Transform magazine website contains more details about the eligibility requirements.

 

THE PROJECT I AM ENTERING WAS COMPLETED IN-HOUSE. CAN I STILL ENTER?

Yes, we welcome in-house projects!

 

MY CLIENT IS BASED OUTSIDE OF THE AWARDS REGION. AM I STILL ELIGIBLE TO PARTICIPATE?

Projects undertaken outside the region will be accepted as long as the client/agency is based within the region, target audience is within the region or if the brand work was implemented across the region.

 

CAN PREVIOUS ENTRIES BE SENT TO POTENTIAL ENTRANTS?

As per our eligibility and rules section on the Transform magazine website, we cannot send out previous entries as they may contain sensitive and/or confidential material and figures that cannot be disclosed.

alt
IS IT OK IF I EXCEED THE WORD COUNT?

The word count is set as a guide, exceeding it slightly will not be penalised. However, it is always better to aim for a more concise piece of work as our judges read a significant amount of material.

 

HOW SHOULD I INCLUDE MY SUPPORTING MATERIALS?

All supporting materials should be included within the document. If you wish to include videos, please add a hyperlink to it in your PDF entry, rather than embedding the video itself. Embedded videos can often increase the size of your entry so that it is over the 10mb limit. 

 

CAN I ONLY INCLUDE IMAGES IN THE SUPPORTING MATERIALS SECTION?

Your submission can be designed and branded as you wish. Previous submissions have integrated imagery with their entry summary and statement to add to the entry narrative. At the end of the entry, further imagery can be included in the supporting materials section to showcase the project. We ask that you limit the pages of images, as our judges have many submissions to go through, so make sure to be selective and relevant.

 

ON THE 'ENTER NOW' SECTION OF THE WEBSITE, WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE FIELDS OF 'COMPANY' AND 'ENTERING COMPANY'

Often, agencies enter their clients into our awards (i.e. company = agency, entering company = client). If this does not apply to you and you are entering independently, simply fill in both fields with your company name.

 

WHY WON'T MY ENTRY SEND?

If you are receiving an error message when submitting, you may have exceeded the 10mb size limit or your file is not a pdf. If your entry is within the size limit but you are still receiving that error message, contact our office on +44 (0)20 3950 5356.

 

CAN I GET AN EXTENSION?

We cannot usually offer extensions past the deadlines listed on the key dates page as it impacts on the judging process. However, please do contact our office on +44 (0)20 3950 5356 to express your interest in entering and we may be able to find a solution. 

 

alt
HOW CAN I ENSURE THAT BUDGETS DISCLOSED ON THE ENTRY WILL REMAIN CONFIDENTIAL?

Please clearly mark the entry to let us know that you do not wish information on certain budgets (or any other information) to be shared, we will ensure that all such information is kept strictly confidential.

 

IS THERE A COST TO ENTER?

Rates are available on the fees and payments page on the Transform magazine website. There are also discount rates available for charities/NFPs and an early entry discount offer for those who enter before a certain date.

HOW DO I PAY FOR MY ENTRIES?

After you submit your entry, you will be prompted to pay via PayPal (owning an account is not necessary to complete payment). If an alternative payment method is preferred, please contact our office on +44 (0)20 3950 5356, where one of our team can explain other payment options.

 

I WANT TO ENTER MORE ENTRIES AT A LATER DATE, HOW DO I GET THE REDUCED ENTRY COST?

Entries submitted at a later date are charged at the additional entry cost. If you feel that you should receive a lower cost please call the team on +44 (0)20 3950 5356 to pay by card over the phone (we do not accept AMEX over the phone) or let us know if you would like to be invoiced.
