How to Enter

The entry process is simple, so entering should not take up much time.

Closed for entry.


PMGroup will keep all information provided confidential and all judges will sign a confidentiality agreement prior to appointment. Entrants may mark certain sensitive parts of their entry 'not for publication', provided such restrictions are not used unreasonably.

Entries are invited from anyone working in the diabetes arena throughout the UK and Ireland. Whatever the area of patient care, if your initiative or programme relates to diabetes in any way, you should enter it. Judges are keen to review a wide spectrum of entries and recognise the innovative practice that we know is out there.

We welcome initiatives and programmes that were launched between January 2011 and December 2016.

Take a look at the categories to decide which one is most appropriate for your entry. Please note that an initiative can be entered in one category only. However an entrant can submit multiple initiatives into the appropriate categories.

Entries for certain categories are decided by nomination. Submit your choice for who should win the Diabetes Healthcare Professional of the Year, People's Award or Outstanding Educator in Diabetes.

Why should I enter?
