Calling all Most Wanted applicants – after months of hard work and dedication, the time has come to dot the last i’s and cross the final t’s on your 2020 entries, as the 10 June closing date is almost upon us. But before you head out to the Post Office, book your courier, diarise your drop-off or click send on that email, please ensure you’ve checked (and double checked!) that you’ve completed everything on our final checklist:
1. DON’T MISS THE DEADLINE
5pm, Wednesday 10 June 2020 is when Most Wanted officially closes for entries
2. CRITERIA CHECK
Make sure you have completed all the requirements in the category brief: including page limits, word limits, imagery, file formats and supporting evidence (for example a photo of you/the salon team/the salon), as required. Entries that don’t adhere to the criteria will be disqualified
3. IT’S ALL ABOUT YOU
We want to celebrate you and your amazing achievements, so make sure your entry has packed in a true personality punch
4. ENTRY FORM DONE
Details filled in, all the boxes ticked, date and signature completed? If you’re submitting digitally, click HERE to fill in our editable online version – typing your name for the signature is fine!
5. DIGITAL ENTRIES
Email or file transfer (if over 10MB) your entry to email@example.com, listing the subject of the email in the following format: MOST WANTED AWARDS – NAME OF CATEGORY – YOUR NAME. For a guide to submitting digitally, head HERE
6. POST IT RIGHT
Don’t delay! Post may be taking longer than normal to arrive, so factor in extra time to ensure it arrives with us by the 10 June. Make sure that you’ve used the correct postage for the weight and size of your package – we would hate for all your hard work to be lost en route! Send to:
Most Wanted, Creative HEAD, 21 The Timber Yard, Drysdale Street, London N1 6ND
7. DROP OFF
Using a courier to drop off or hand-delivering your hard copy entry? You can still do so but ONLY between 9am-5pm on the 8, 9 and 10 June. For courier drivers, note down our phone number +44 (0)20 7324 7540 on the booking in case of any issues, and save it to your phone too if you’re submitting it in person. Note: social distancing measures will be adhered to
8. RETURN POSTAGE
If you’d like your hard copy entry returned to you afterwards, please include a stamped addressed envelope correctly sized for your entry. Make sure you check that any returns postage isn’t subject to a time limit – it may be up to four months before entries are returned or a year if you go on to win
9. NEED TO REACH US?
For any enquiries or urgent matters, please call +44 (0)1434 610940 during office hours, or email firstname.lastname@example.org
To all potential Most Wanted stars of 2020 – we wish you the very BEST OF LUCK! We are grateful to each and every one of you for taking the time to enter in these unprecedented and challenging times for the hairdressing industry and can’t wait to see what you’ve got in store for us this year… BRING MWIT ON!
