What you need to know

Submissions should be informative but concise and no longer than 1,000 words in total. Please note that all entries must be illustrated with facts, figures, performance data, statistics and customer profile. The use of graphics to illustrate your submission is encouraged. In addition you are allowed to support your entry with back-up material, as this will enable you to expand on the success of your product or campaign. The material will vary depending on the category entered and could include any of the following: branded media coverage, press releases, customer testimonials, sales figures, or other collateral that you feel helps to back up and strengthen your submission.

There are 17 different categories, including four brand new categories for 2017. The Frontier Awards are still free to enter, you just need to pick your categories and complete the simple online entry. You may enter as many categories as you wish, but can only have one entry in each category.
