Lodging multiple submissions

If you are lodging submissions for multiple award categories, congratulations! Please use a common sense approach to creating submissions for multiple categories. While producing an awards submission can be a time-consuming process, there are ways in which you can reduce the work required. For example, you may be able to use the same core submission for a number of different categories, tailored to the specifics of each category.

NOTE: You will still need to lodge separate submission documents online for each award you are entering.
