How much does it cost to enter the awards?

There is an entry fee to pay when you enter the Awards. Why? Because there are real costs associated with the care and secure storage of entries, and the processing of entries and payments. Distributing collated papers to the judges, convening the jury, providing a venue for the judging days, if necessary, offering refreshments and lunch to the judges, compiling the privately scored judges’ marks and communicating the short-list to the lucky finalists, also incur costs. 

The entry fee is set at £300.00 plus VAT at the current applicable rate (£360.00 including VAT at 20%, if applicable) for the first entry only.

Hydrogen UK, Hydrogen Energy Association and the US FCHEA have negotiated special rates as a benefit for their members, who are entitled to a discount of 25% off the standard entry fee, reducing the cost to just £225 (£270.00 including VAT, if applicable) for their first entry.

All second or subsequent entries, however, will be FREE OF CHARGE.

Payment for all first entries must be received at the time of entry and receipt of all first and subsequent entries will be acknowledged electronically. If you wish to pay for your first entry against an invoice, please check the relevant box on the Entry Form and an invoice will be raised for you to pay by BACS, FundsFlow, wire transfer, or PayPal, using a debit or credit card or your PayPal account.

By way of advance notice, please note that we will always run an event to celebrate the success of Finalists after judging is complete. It may a physical event, where table places will be available at a rate per person, or an online event, where a fee per Finalist company will be made, but these charges will be additional to any entry fees. Being part of a physical event or online presentation is at the discretion of each Finalist company and the results declared are completely independent of participation.

Call for entries opens: September 1
