The entry process

All entries must be received by Friday 15 February 2019. Once your entry has been submitted you will receive a confirmation email.

Entries are only accepted online through the RCNi Nurse Awards website. Please ensure you read the description of the category you wish to enter by visiting 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.

Finalists will be expected to travel to London for the face-to-face judging in May and the awards ceremony on Wednesday 3 July 2019.

One finalist per entry will receive a complimentary ticket to the awards ceremony and will have their travel expenses to attend the face-to-face judging and the awards ceremony reimbursed. If you are submitting a team entry this will apply to one member of the team only. If you wish for additional team members to attend either the judging and/or the awards ceremony, their ticket(s) and travel will need to be funded by the entrant. This applies to all additional attendees.

Judging takes place throughout March, April and May. All entrants, whether shortlisted or not, will be notified via email to confirm whether their entry has been successful. If applicable the entrant’s nominator 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.
