Who can win an award?

Any current Queen’s student or student group is eligible to win an award, but be sure to adhere to the eligibility criteria (e.g. Best New Club or Society). 

All awards must be won by current Queen’s students, so unfortunately Graduate and SU-Led schemes aren’t eligible. This also means activities with significant staff leadership are not eligible to win awards.

Who can nominate?

Any current Queen’s student can submit a nomination. You can only nominate yourself or your own group/club or society.

You can’t submit a nomination for someone else and staff can’t submit nominations, but feel free to give your fabulous friends a nudge or encourage them to apply!

You can nominate yourself or your group/club/society for multiple awards.

How do I write a Good Nomination?

A good nomination statement should include a range of specific examples relating to each criterion laid out in the category description. Make use of the full 400 words available and avoid vague statements, try and be as detailed as possible!

Nominations are shortlisted on the basis of quality, not quantity. One well-written nomination is far more likely to be shortlisted than ten one-sentence submissions, so make sure you take your time!

How do I Submit a Nomination?

Please nominate yourself (or your club, society, or student group) by submitting the form here.

Nominations close Midnight, Sun 26 March!

What if I’m Shortlisted?

If your nomination is successfully shortlisted, you will be invited to make a short presentation to our judging panel on the 3rd, 4th or 5th of April.  

The winners will then be revealed at our awards night on Thursday 27th of April in Mandela Hall!

Our nomination form will close at on Sun 26 March, so don’t forget to submit your nomination before the clock strikes midnight!

Good luck, we look forward to receiving your wonderful nominations!
