All entries will be judged initially on the entry forms and supporting documentation. Once finalists have been chosen (three per category), a panel of judges will visit each finalist in person to view the project. The visiting panels will include a combination of experienced healthcare architects, interior designers, valuers, lenders and operators.
Although any party involved in a project can submit an entry, it must be submitted in the name of the project owner, who will be the recipient of any award given.
If your project is selected as a finalist, you will be expected to allow a judging panel to visit the project and meet with staff and residents as part of the judging process.
Whilst information provided in your entry will be kept in the strictest confidence, entrants agree that a summary of the project, including photographs and names of the project and its owners, may be published by Nexus Media Group in Caring Times magazine and by any associated sponsors.
Any material submitted by entrants will be at their own risk and will only be returned if specifically requested.
Decisions made by the judges are final, and no discussion or correspondence will be entered into regarding this.
