Hallmarks of Excellence

The independent judging panel will take a range of attributes into account when reviewing entry forms – we call these the ‘Hallmarks of Excellence’. The project or initiative you are putting forward should be able to demonstrate achievement in most, if not all, of these Hallmarks.

The entry form invites you to explain how your project demonstrates these attributes.

To help applicants understand what each of the Hallmarks mean and how other organisations have employed them to good effect, we have created a series of guides containing case studies, expert advice and analysis on each one.
