FAQ

Can I apply for more than 2 categories?

No, you are only allowed to apply for 2 categories. All entrants must apply to enter the Best Managed Business (Small/ Medium/ Large depending on the size of the organisation) and are welcome to apply for up to one other category.

However, you can have a discussion with us to decide which is the best category to apply for. If, on the judging day, the judges feel that your entry would stand a better chance in another category they will move your application accordingly and let you know.


Can I nominate someone else for a category / award?

Yes, you can! If there is a person, business, or organisation that you would like to nominate for an award, then get in touch with us and we’ll do the rest! You can do this by sending an email of who you’d like to nominate to this address: info@cornwallsustainabilityawards.org
