Making a Nomination

It's really easy to nominate either a team or an individual for a prestigious HCL Award.

Just take a look at the 14 award categories, along with the corresponding entry criteria for each award. Then assess which criteria best suits the individual or team you wish to nominate and start to collate as much evidence that you think will help the judges see why this person or team should be a winner!

The judges like to see nomination submissions with a variety of different evidence such as surveys, uptake or financial graphs, customer or client representation and letters of support or appreciation along with pictures and / or short films or audio files. And because everything is on-line, you can upload as much supporting documentation as you wish.

Once you have collated all of the evidence you feel best represents your candidate(s), along with a written narrative (between approximately *500 and *1,000 words. *Word count excludes any tables, quotes, graphs and pupil / student contributions within the main narrative and excludes additional or supplementary evidence), simply upload your files.

All file formats are accepted as evidence including, but not restricted to: Microsoft Word, Excel, JPEG, MP4 Video, MP3 Audio, PowerPoint and PDF.
