Entering the EUPRIO Awards

It’s easy and free to enter the EUPRIO Awards. We can accept one entry per university and one project per entry. All you need to do is complete the 2019 EUPRIO Awards entry form and email it back to the address specified. Therefore, you’ll need to prepare a poster (maximum A1 size) and other supporting material that represent your campaign or project in the best way. Then, the poster and other supporting materials will form an exhibition of entries for the Awards Jury and delegates to view at the conference prior to voting. And, of course, any university entering the EUPRIO Awards must also have representatives attending the conference. We wouldn’t want the spotlight to fall on an empty stage when we make our presentation to the winners!

We’re looking for entries across the whole range of the university communications mix. These could be social media campaigns, video projects or even traditional printed materials designed and used in an innovative way.

What the EUPRIO Awards Jury is looking for

This project exist to recognise and reward excellence. Conference delegates and the Awards Jury will be considering four criteria for each entry. These are:
1. Project originality
2. Creativity in concept and execution
3. Success in meeting defined objectives
4. Cost, as measured in budget and resources, in relation to benefit

What you need to do now

When you download the 2019 EUPRIO Awards entry form you’ll see it contains various sections. It’s important to complete all of these sections as fully as possible, to the number of words specified. Then email this form back to us (awards@euprio.eu) by Friday May 31, 2019 at the latest.

As mentioned, we require you to prepare a number of items and these can either be mailed to the conference host university or brought with you to the conference. However, we would ask you to indicate on the entry form which of these two options you wish to use.

As well as the poster (including a jpg of this), other materials relating to your campaign or project could include brochures, flyers, tee-shirts, etc. You may also, if you wish, present on your laptop. One person from your team will need to be present at your stand during the exhibition viewing session prior to voting.

How is the winner chosen?

Everyone attending the EUPRIO annual conference will be able to vote for their favourite Awards entry. Look out for the voting papers in your conference packs. The Awards Jury will take equally into account votes cast by conference delegates alongside its own votes. Therefore the eventual winning entry – and the two runners-up – will be seen to have well and truly demonstrated their excellence. The decision of the EUPRIO Awards Jury is final.
