THE SCOTTISH TRANSPORT AWARDS ENTRY PROCESS HAS CHANGED. PLEASE VIEW THE RULES BELOW CAREFULLY.
Please bear this in mind before you start putting any documents together!
Award entries must be submitted online
The Awards are free to enter
Award entries no longer should take the form of a 1000 word essay-style document. You will now be required to submit answers to following questions:
Who are we? (max 700 characters)
Project Initiative or Service Overview (max 2500 characters)
Key Results / Outcomes / Performance NB: Written as text as opposed to e.g. tabular / graphical. Comparison to previous years or national / regional average encouraged (max 2000 characters) *characters include spaces
Projects forming part of a submission (including improvements to existing schemes) must have been implemented after January 2017 and any results should include the latest data
You may submit the same entry for more than one award category
Award entries must clearly demonstrate the positive results the project/initiative has achieved. These results could, for example, take the form of increased passenger satisfaction levels, improved service reliability, higher carbon savings, increased efficiency, higher patronage growth, increased safety levels etc. The strongest entries will convey results in a statistical manner and show how the results have been measured
If the aim of the project was to provide a solution to an existing problem, make sure you describe the previous situation and the subsequent positive changes and results that have occurred since implementation
In order to make your entry stand out from the others, it is a good idea to highlight any innovative elements contained in the project/initiative
You can upload and include photographs and diagrams if they help to better illustrate your results/achievements, for example, improvements to rail stations or public realm projects may be conveyed more strongly if photographs underpin the written entry
If your project has already won a transport award we recommend that you tell us about a different project(s) or make it clear how the projects(s) has progressed since you won the award
Do not supply supporting material unless specified under award category
Award entries will be accepted up to 15th February 2019
You will be informed if you’ve made the final shortlist by email in April 2019
The Judging Panel's decision is final
