Apprentice of the Year

General Criteria

The Electrical Contracting News Awards 2024 are trade-only awards, meaning consumers are not permitted to enter any category. Each award will be judged by an independent expert panel based on the criteria set out for each category. The judges will individually score each entry. There is a qualifying period which will define which entries will be valid. This period is between 1 September 2023 and 31 August 2024. That means any product launched, or any project completed, before or after these dates will not be eligible to enter.

Each category will have a 500-word limit, plus a further 250 words will be available to explain why you think you deserve to win the award. There will be different criteria for each award category. Please also supply up to three images of the product, plus the company’s logo. Entrants may also supply up to one page of supporting evidence, such as testimonials, press coverage, case studies, spec sheets.

The awards are completely FREE to enter and there is no limit on the number of categories or number of submissions you can tender. Entries will close on 13 September 2024.
