MIA 2021 entry process

Entering the 2021awards will be the easiest decision you make this year - our entry portal is user-friendly and our team are here to help you every step of the way, and what’s more it’s free to enter. 


All entries must be submitted by no later than 6pm on 18th March 2021.

Tables will be available on a first come first served basis, so we invite you to go online and select your table packages - we can either take card payment or organise an invoice to send to you.

Four great reasons to enter

Reward and motivate you and your team - entering the MIA sends a message to your team that their achievements are worth shouting about – and being shortlisted is a huge boost to company morale.

Build customer trust and confidence - an award is a mark of quality that sets you apart from your competitors and proves your corporate credentials. It’s an independent endorsement that can help you attract new customers, partners, investors and talent.

Grow your profile and reach – Winning (or just being shortlisted) is fantastic PR and marketing opportunity that gives you the chance to tell your story and share your success.

Benchmarking – The award tells the judges, and your industry, that you are the best of the best – and a company worth doing business with.

For all awards updates visit our site  - we look forward to seeing you on the 29th September 2021!
