To enter the Retirement Living Awards you will only need to pay for the first entry you make for any one project or development. If you wish to submit an entry for a different project or development, you will need to pay another first entry fee. Once you have completed your first entry for any one project or development you can then make as many entries as you wish for that same project.
You pay for the first entry for any one project or development, online, at the time of entry and you will be taken to the payment page when you click the Submit button at the foot of the entry form. This may take a few seconds to load, so please be patient. All second and subsequent entries you make concerning the same project or development will be FREE OF CHARGE, but will be listed on your automatically generated invoice.
Each first entry made by a company will always be £300.00. Second or more entries for the same project or development may do so free of charge, simply by clicking the “This is a secondary entry” check box on any subsequent entry form. We will monitor entries carefully and if, for any reason, you pay too much or too little, we will notify you and immediately make any adjustment.
UK Value Added Tax (VAT) will be added to the entry fee when applicable and the payment page should automatically show you the correct amount to pay.


What does the entry fee cover?

The fee is an administration fee covering the personnel costs involved in checking entries and their bona fides, collating all entries and bookmarking them in portfolios for the ease of the judges, convening the judging panels, supervising the judging process and events, covering any expense items associated with the judging, calculating all marks to establish a benchmark for all categories, compiling and publicising the short lists of finalists.

Each first entry will incur a fee and must be paid for.

When you complete a first entry you will be taken to the payment page, where you will be able to pay, using any internationally recognised credit or debit card, via the PayPal for Business system, or you can elect to pay by invoice and you are allowed a maximum of 14 days credit to make the payment due.

By way of advance notice, please note that we will always run an event to celebrate the success of Finalists after judging is complete. It may a physical event, where attendance may or may not be charged at a rate per person, or an online event, where a fee per Finalist company will be made, but these charges will be additional to any entry fees. Being part of a physical event or online presentation is at the discretion of each Finalist company and the results declared are completely independent of participation.
