When does entry close?

Entry to the Scottish Accountancy & Financial Technology Awards closes at midnight on 22nd March 2019.

How long does it take to complete the entry form?

Completing the entry form should take no longer than 10 minutes.

Can the form be used across multiple devices?

Please be aware that changes cannot be tracked across multiple devices, therefore we would recommend completing the form from one device and submit before midnight 22nd March 2019.

Can I enter multiple categories?

A person/organisation can enter for multiple award categories as long as each entry satisfies the specific award criteria in that category. The event organisers reserve the right to reassign entry to a category they believe it is most suited to.

Will I be contacted for more information?

Once a nomination has been submitted, a questionnaire will be sent out for completion. We may need to contact you or the organisation to seek further information in order to progress with your entry. The questionnaires will then be shortlisted by our panel of experts. Please ensure you provide accurate email addresses and mobile telephone numbers for this purpose and respond as quickly as you can if contacted.

When will I hear if my nomination has been successful?

We will make contact with all of the people nominated who have got through the judging process. At that point, we will be seeking their agreement that the person/organisation is happy to proceed as a finalist.

What happens if I am shortlisted?

If you are shortlisted by our expert panel you will be contacted to move forward to the next stage by being invited to attend an interview in front of the judging panel. Please ensure you are available on Wednesday, 1st May 2019 to attend the interview in order for your submission to be taken forward.
