There are three main components required for each project entry:
1. A Detailed Project Description
Whilst there are no particular restrictions on the content of project descriptions, entrants need to include sufficient technical detail. Entries that do not include a sufficient description will be disqualified.
In order to avoid unduly influencing the judging process, your description should avoid mentioning specific brand names, trademarks, supplier names or make any other references that could help identify the owner or origin of the entrant’s submission. Only generic names should be used.
The online entry form will guide you through the following questions:
What are the project specifications?
The project specification should be a brief description of the project and should contain sufficient information to help the judges understand/visualise the project. ie. Where was it installed, located or used?
What was the purpose of this project? What did the client request?
What was the project designed and manufactured for?
What is unique or complex about the project?
This information will help the judges understand your challenges and solutions for the project.
Were there any particular challenges that you had to overcome?
Was there anything different or special about the solution you proposed and then implemented?
What were the results of this project?
How did the project achieve or exceed the client’s needs?
Is there any other relevant information about this project that has not been covered in the above questions that you would like the judges to be aware of?
2. A Project Summary
A 50-75 word summary of your project is required to be submitted with your entry.
The project summary will be used on the awards night to introduce your project, so this can include – fabric type/name, brief description and area of fabric.
Upload 5-7 high resolution digital images of your project at various angles as well as one that specifically captures the overall perspective. If you have a video of the completed project you can also upload that or include a link. It is important to submit good quality photographs of the project – photos taken with a mobile phone may look acceptable on a computer screen, but aren’t necessarily conducive to judging and do not display the project favourably.
