After the final deadline of 21st November 2021 has passed, all entries from participants (Business Ideas, Business Plans and Annual Reports) will be sent to an external panel of expert judges. Each submission will be assessed against the official Achievement Criteria. The entries which score the most 'Exceptional' sections according to the Achievement Criteria will be considered for prizes.
In the interest of fairness, the Achievement Criteria is set at the start of each year and remains fixed for the duration of that year. All participants have access to the Achievement Criteria from the moment they register to take part. You can access the Achievement Criteria for the 2021 programme here.
The full list of prize winners for the 2021 programme will be announced in February/March 2022.
Please note that, as per the Terms and Conditions of the programme, the decision made by the panel of expert judges is final and cannot be contested.
