Any entry that is deemed to be of this nature will not be judged and will be withdrawn. In these instances, entry fees will not be refunded.

2. Strategies/schemes that were running at any time during 2017 are eligible for entry. They could have been running for a number of years, or launched during 2017.

6. For employers entering their own benefits schemes, we charge an entry fee of £150 + VAT per entry. For benefits consultants, advisers and providers entering on behalf of employer clients, there will be a £325 +VAT fee per entry.
