How to enter

Any individual who lives and/or works in the UK may enter. Entries may be from individuals or a collaboration. If an entrant is associated with an organisation represented on the judging panel, the relevant judge will not take part in decisions about that entry.

Please email your finished essay to The deadline to submit work is 15 October, with the results announced in November. All those shortlisted will be invited to a presentation and meeting with the judging panel. Shortlisted entries will be publicised by BPAS and NCT, and promising ideas will be discussed by the WRISK Oversight Committee, with a view to considering merits of further development in collaboration with the applicant(s).
