  16. The winners and judges commended of each category will be announced on Awards day; under no circumstances will the details be disclosed before that time.

  18. CRN is not obliged to provide feedback on individual entries that have either not made the shortlist or won an award.
  19. If you enter any of these five awards – Partner of the year (£25m-£250m)/Partner of the Year (£250m+ turnover)/Vendor of the Year/Distributor of the Year (£100m - £300m turnover) or Distributor of the Year (£300m+ turnover), and are shortlisted, you will be required to attend a face-to-face judging day on WEDNESDAY 2 OCTOBER to make a further 5-10 minute presentation to the judges. The judging day will take place in central London – venue yet to be confirmed. More information on that to come when the shortlist is announced.
  20. Please stick to the deadline – it is there for a reason so the judges have enough time to read through them and CRN has enough time to prepare all the materials needed for the awards. Please ensure your entry is received BY THE CLOSING DATE WHICH IS FRIDAY 28 JUNE 2024.
