All shortlisted applicants will be invited to a short 5-minute interview. The interview can either be at your work premises or in Rich Media Group’s studio in Stockport. The interview will then be edited and condensed down to a 30 second-1 minute video which then will be played at the award show, before announcing the winner.

All shortlisted applicants MUST purchase at least two award tickets. Award tickets are £130 per person. See below for more information about award tickets.

The judging panel will then view the applicant’s 5-interview and will decide who their winner is for each category. The awards chair will then total up the scores and whoever has the highest score in each category wins, which will be announced at the award show on FRIDAY 2ND SEPTEMBER 2022.
