How to enter

Nominating your company for an award can be a daunting experience if you've never done it before, but fortunately the entry process for the Retail Systems Awards could not be simpler - here's how it works:

Choose your categories
You can enter as many categories as you like, submitting each entry separately via the online form. Visit the categories page to read the criteria.

Write a brief company profile
Tell us about your company in 100 words or less. Your profile should give an overview of the company itself rather than the specific product, project or service, and may be used publicly in Retail Systems Awards marketing material.

Write your main entry
Your nomination will be judged on a supporting statement of no more than 1000 words. This should outline the type of technology involved, the specific requirements of the project, and the end result in terms of business benefits to the company.

Briefly summarise the entry
In 100 words or less, sum up your entry. Please don't include any sensitive information in the entry summary as it may be quoted in public marketing material.

Submit your nomination online via the entry form
Upload all your documents (preferably in Word or PDF format) to the entry form and add your contact details (including your UK office address) so we can confirm that we've received your entry. Please note that there is a maximum 4mb size limit per file and our system may be unable to process your entry if you exceed this limit.

Don't forget your logo!
A large, high quality company logo must be uploaded with each submission - if you're nominating multiple companies for the same award please provide all relevant logos. If your entry is shortlisted, your logo will be displayed at the awards ceremony attended by hundreds of the leading names in the industry.

Who can enter the Retail Systems Awards?
The awards are open to any relevant organisation or individual based in the UK.

How much does it cost to enter the awards?
Nothing! The awards are and always have been completely free to enter.

I've entered and received a confirmation email - what happens next?
Soon after the awards close for entries, we will announce the shortlist, from which our judging panel will select the winners who will be announced at the Retail Systems Awards ceremony on 27 June 2018. The shortlist will be published on our website and all shortlist entrants will be notified by email.
