FAQs

Will the 2020 awards programme go ahead?

Following the UK response to the coronavirus COVID-19 outbreak, we have taken the very difficult decision to cancel the 2020 TJ Awards programme.

The health and well-being of our participants, judges and colleagues are at the forefront of our planning and our decision to cancel this year’s programme is in response to social-distancing measures and official guidance we expect to remain in place for some time.

I entered the 2020 programme before it was cancelled, what happens to my entry?

All entries started or submitted for the 2020 programme will be transferred to 2021. A member of our team will contact you with further information on how to do this.

How can I enter the 2021 programme?

Entries for the TJ Awards 2021 will open in early Spring. You will be able to enter the awards via the TJ Awards website.

What are the judges looking for in an entry?

To answer this question and more, we hosted two free Webinars #TJTalks to help you with the application process. You can listen to recordings of these here: TJ Awards webinar #1: "What makes a successful awards entry?" and TJ Awards webinar #2: "How to maximise your chances of success in the TJ Awards"

What happens with my entry?

Our panel of expert judges will review all applications and draw up a shortlist of six entries per category.

The shortlist will be announced online via the TJ awards website and printed within the extended editorial edition of the TJ.

The bronze, silver and gold winners of each category are announced at the prestigious awards ceremony and gala dinner.

What happens if I’m shortlisted?

Congratulations! You will be notified and invited to participate in an interview with our judging panel following the summer break. You will also be provided with all the information you may need ahead of the interview and what to prepare.
