Upcoming award deadlines (in the next two months)

MD & Founder, Boost Awards

Award deadlines coming up (scroll down below text for a list of awards organised by industry) 

Welcome to our guide to the awards to consider entering with deadlines coming up in May, June and beyond. With lots of deadlines coming this is an ideal time to get the recognition you deserve!     

As ever, contact our team here at Boost if you need help with your entries or guidance on which awards to enter. It’s the perfect time to get a date in your diary to plan which awards to enter this year – our amazing in-depth awards planning sessions are a great way to get teams together from across your organisation to identify which are your strongest stories. We can then match them to awards that would provide most benefit to you. Okay, let’s get started with the awards to look out for in spring…

Employer awards, Business awards, Leadership awards, HR awards and training awards

For a more comprehensive overview, please read our guides to ‘Great Employer Schemes‘, ‘Which are the best HR Awards to enter?’ and ‘Diversity and Inclusion awards‘. 

We are delighted to see the new cycle has begun for Sunday Times Best Places to Work, powered by WorkL which involves an employee survey using a dynamic dashboard and granular insights. It is an ongoing process, but helpfully we have a detailed article explaining everything you need to know in order to participate.

Now in their 21st year, The International Business Awards® (aka ‘International Stevies’) features literally hundreds of categories across all industries, with bronze, silver and gold awarded for each, so a really great opportunity to gain some global recognition – enter before the 12th June deadline. 

If you are looking for an international general business award, The TITAN Business Awards and TITAN Women in Business Awards both share an extended deadline of 13th May and include loads of categories, so something for everyone. 

The LDC Top 50 Most Ambitious Business Leaders Awards programme, in partnership with The Times, aims to uncover and celebrate the UK’s most ambitious entrepreneurs. Super credible and now open until 30th May. 

Other deadlines for great employer awards and HR coming up include The CIPD People Management Awards (2nd May), The Personnel Today Awards (7th June) and further afield The Stevies Awards for Great Employers (26th June). 

Two of the most prominent programmes regarding social mobility are on the horizon – Social Mobility Employer Index (7th June) and The UK Social Mobility Awards (28th June). Or if you are providing an excellent customer experience, consider The European Customer Experience Awards (28th June).   

In the world of training and benefits keep an eye out for the very well-established Workplace Savings & Benefits Awards – they say to register by 3rd May but you have until 24th May for the submission.   

Marketing, Events and PR awards

There are a large number of credible marketing and creative awards that have launched, so I won’t mention them all, but some that focus on particular areas of digital marketing that should be on your radar include: VEGA Digital Awards (extended deadline 15th May), Muse Creative Awards (13th June regular deadline), and finally The Viddy Awards which are open until 16th May. Further afield deadline-wise, PRWeek Awards are open until 6th June and The Drum Awards Festival (which incorporates multiple Drum Awards under one umbrella) until 10th July. 

Financial services and insurance awards

Financial services is a broad umbrella, so always best to check our Financial Services Awards list to find the area you are most interested in. Specific mentions this month include the highly credible Public Finance Awards (15th May), The World’s Best Digital Bank Awards by Global Finance (8th May), Moneyage Awards (21st June), The Banker Innovation in Digital Banking Awards (28th June) and The Accounting Excellence Awards (14th June). 

Tech awards

Special mention for this month goes to the technology and computing sectors, and four awards programmes in particular – The SaaS Awards program, which celebrates the brightest and the best in software and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) – now open until 24th May. The second is the highly prestigious and long-established UK IT Industry Awards, now open until 28th June. Also sharing that deadline is the newly established Stevie® Awards for Technology Excellence – a great new addition to the well-established family of Stevie Awards. Featuring hundreds of categories across all aspects of technology, these global awards are sure to be popular and provide credible recognition for individuals, team and organisations. Final mention in the world of tech – look out for the Dotcomm Awards (13th June) which celebrates all the tools and creativity of the online world we live in.   

Sustainability awards

Finally, some sustainability/CSR awards coming up that should be on your radar. You still have time to enter the highly credible Global Good Awards (3rd May), and a little further on the horizon, The ACT Diversity and Sustainability Awards (7th June) and the rebranded Reuter’s Event’s Sustainability Awards (28th June). 

Hopefully these highlights will provide insights to help you plan which awards to enter. Below you will find all the awards with deadlines occurring within the next two months, organised by industry sector. Remember, do please contact Boost if you need a helping hand entering any of these – our in-house team of experienced award writers have won over 2,000 awards, and can increase your chances of a win significantly.
