Conditions Of Entry
Entries close 21 December 2018, 5pm. Entries must be received by Niche Media on or before this date and time.
All entries must be submitted online at www.fmmedia.com.au/fmawards.
Projects must have been completed between 25 January 2018 to 21 December 2018. Projects may be entered in more than one category, if they qualify.
All awards incur a fee of $195 to enter. The overall winner is selected from the winners of each of the seven (7) categories and is based on the project having a remarkable outcome that defies all expectations.
While each category has specific criteria for entry with which you must comply, the Jury will be looking at the following four key criteria in determining the shortlist, highly commended and winners:
- the level of challenge presented by the problem or requirement
- the quality of the business case justification
- the relevance of the solution to meeting the challenge, and
- the resulting outcome(s) and how they have been measured.
Only projects deemed by the shortlisting judges to be of the highest calibre in meeting these criteria will be accepted.
If shortlisted, at least one member of the nominated facility will be required to present to attend the presentation event on 20 March 2019, at Total Facilities in Sydney. Practices unable to attend the presentation event may send a representative in their place.
Niche Media and its partners will not be held responsible for any non-receipt of entries, however so caused. Entries ruled invalid for whatever reason will not be considered for the awards.
