Deadline day

October 20 is the entry deadline for CID Awards 2008.

October 20 is the entry deadline for CID Awards 2008.

The venue has been decided, the menu selected, awards designed and we've started on the invitations too. The CID Awards for 2008 are definitely drawing closer.

This year's event will be hosted at the Westin in Dubai, on December 7. But for those who hope to scoop a prize there's still plenty of work to be done. The awards judging team need to have nominations by October 20 and these must come through the CID Awards website: www.itp.net/events/cidawards. Standards last year were very high and we expect to see entries pushing new standards this year.

Once you've completed the initial registration online, you can dip in and out of the site to complete your entry. This can include loading up to three supporting documents, pictures, presentations or anything else that you feel may help your nomination.

Short-listed entries may be asked to supply high-resolution images and some additional information to aid the nomination process. Nominations will then be circulated to our judging panel. They may also be used in CID - in print, online or both - as the basis of a case study, as a standalone article, or as part of an awards feature.

Nomination tips

The judges have a tough job, so the easier you can make it for them, the more time they'll have to spend on your nomination. Keep your nominations clear and succinct. Use hard facts to demonstrate the qualities of your nomination and deal with well-grounded and supported statements.

Please make sure you include details for a nominator and nominee, just in case the judges need to double-check any information. And don't forget to pencil the date of the awards ceremony in your diary, because all short-listed nominees will need to be at the event on the night.
