2. All entries must be submitted electronically, with up to five pieces of supporting evidence, either emailed as attachments or posted by the published entry deadline. Late arrival may mean your entry doesn’t progress further. Please note that we can only accept PDF, Word, JPEG, GIF or EPS formats for emailed attachments. In all cases, ensure that supporting evidence is clearly marked with the entrant’s name. Any supporting material submitted cannot be returned and the organisers cannot accept any liability for loss or cost of submitted materials.

4. All individuals, groups and organisations successfully making it to the finalist stage agree to the organisers arranging publicity and naming them as finalists.

5. The successful individual finalists, not representing a corporate organisation, will be invited to attend the awards ceremony free of charge as a guest of St John Ambulance and the award sponsors (Please note that group finalists can send two representatives free of charge but additional places will need to be paid for). Those in Organisation of the Year and Workplace Hero categories are invited to purchase tickets or tables. Unfortunately transport and accommodation cannot be provided by the charity.

6. The judges will be selected for their relevant experience in the subject matter. Their decision will be final and no correspondence can be entered into prior or subsequent to the judging process.

7. The St John Ambulance Everyday Heroes Awards, St John Ambulance, nor any of its agencies can be held liable for any costs incurred by applicants during the entry or judging process howsoever incurred.

8. Once an organisation, team or individual is announced as a finalist, it cannot withdraw from the competition.

9. The judges retain the right to enter nominations for other categories if they deem it appropriate.

By submitting this form, you agree to St John Ambulance retaining your details and to receive further information regarding this event or other products.
