Terms and Conditions for the RCN Nursing Awards 2021

The entry process

All entries must be received by Monday 24 May. Once your entry has been submitted, you will receive a confirmation email.

Entries are accepted online only through the RCN Nursing Awards website. Please ensure you read the description of the category you wish to enter on the categories page on the website before submitting your entry. We strongly recommend that you write the body of your entry in a Word document and then cut and paste it into the online entry form to prevent work being lost. Make sure you keep to the word limit specified for each question.

Entry is free of charge and entrants may submit as many entries as they wish.


Online judging will take place in May with face-to-face judging taking place virtually in July. All entrants will be notified via email to confirm whether their entry has been successful or not. If applicable, nominators will also be notified via email at the same time.

The judges' decision is final and cannot be disputed. Judging is conducted as a panel and no one person is responsible for deciding the winner of each category. Please note that feedback on your entry cannot be provided.


It may be necessary for RCNi to alter the venue and/or the date of this event for reasons beyond our control. We will endeavour to give you as much notice as possible and, where possible, transfer your booking to the new venue and/or date.

The RCN Nursing Awards are organised by RCNi.
