CREST23 Entry Terms and Conditions


To enter you will need to submit (via the website) a written presentation that answers the criteria for the category you are entering. Entries must comply with word counts where specified or risk disqualification. (Excluding supporting evidence.)

Please note the limitations on file types and sizes when uploading supporting documents. If you need to provide different type or larger sized supporting files, then please contact Carol or Terry at

All submissions are acknowledged on receipt.

Entering more than one category is allowed.

The closing date for entries is 16 June 2023


The shortlist committee and the panel of judges welcome all relevant materials that act in support of an entry and help the judges arrive at their final decision. Examples of these might include video links, external web pages, press cuttings, letters or testimonials, published papers or Awards you have previously won.

There are two rounds of voting. The first round will determine finalists in each category. The second round will select the winners for each category. The judges will also select the winner of the Sustainability Hero Award – note that this is not a category that can be entered and is the sole discretion of the judging panel, who may decide on either individuals or companies from who have made outstanding contributions to environmental sustainability,

By submitting an entry, you agree that if you are shortlisted/win an award, CREST Business Awards may publicise the fact, using your company logo, prior to, at the event and after, online and/or in our relevant publications. Your entry submission also means that you agree that you or a company representative agree to be available to attend the awards on the date and location specified on the Awards website.

Our judges’ decision is final, cannot be disputed and no correspondence will be entered into.


Winners will be announced at the awards event on 26 October 2023, due to take place at the WWF Living Planet Centre, Woking, Surrey.

For the purposes of publicity and the use on the night of the awards ceremony, we require a company logo in jpg or png format.

Award winners are authorised to state in advertising/promotional activity and on their branded documents that they are winners, but this must include the category and the year in which the Award was won.

Winners may request a copy of the Award logo from the organiser.
