Method of nomination

To enter, please go to the online Nomination Form and follow the instructions to complete the relevant online nomination form. There is no limit on the number of nominations you may submit. 

Nominations that are incomplete or indecipherable may, at our entire discretion, not be valid and may therefore be deemed void. Use of false or misleading information in the Nomination Form will result in your nomination being invalidated. 

Nominations open on 6 February 2024  at 19:00 GMT and close on 31 March 2024  at 23:59 BST.

This includes obtaining their permission to include ancillary documents such as photographs of the nominee as part of your nomination form. 

If you are under 18 years of age, you must have the permission of your parent or guardian to submit a nomination on behalf of yourself or someone else and, if requested by us, you must provide the name and telephone number of your parent or guardian. 

If you are nominating someone else who is under the age of 18 on the date the nomination is made, then you must obtain consent from their parent or guardian before you nominate them and, if requested by us, you must provide the name and telephone number of their parent or guardian. 

We reserve the right to contact the relevant parent or guardian to check the required consents and to exclude any nominations for which the requisite consent has not been given. 

If you are nominating someone else for an award then it is your responsibility to make the nominee and/ or their parent or legal guardian aware of these Nomination Terms and our Privacy Policy. It is also your responsibility to inform the nominee that they may be required to participate in filming, broadcast and publicity related to the Awards if they are chosen as a winner.  

If you are nominating a team or organisation, and providing us with generic organisational contact details (i.e. no personal details) on behalf of the team/ organisation, then you do not need to inform the organisation that you are nominating them, nor make them aware of the terms as described above. However, if you are singling out an individual for us to contact at this organisation, then please follow the rules for nominating an individual as described above. 

Our team may contact the nominator, the nominees (and their parent/ guardian, where applicable) to verify facts and/ or events and whether the relevant consents/ permissions have been obtained and, by making a nomination, you acknowledge and agree to this. We do not represent, undertake or warrant that we will contact all nominators or nominees. 

We reserve the right (without obligation) to  carry out verification checks on the proposed winners of each category. Nominees must let us know if they or a Nominee have been convicted of a crime, if either they or their Nominee are the subject of ongoing criminal proceedings or investigations, if they or their Nominee have any County Court Judgements against them, or of any other matter that might cause disrepute to us or Jamie Oliver, the Promoter and/ or its affiliates.
