The awards are open to anyone involved in the housing sector – just about anyone is eligible to enter at least one category. Entries are encouraged from housing associations, councils, the private sector and ALMOs from across the whole of the UK.
Team categories are open to teams which are led by women or where the team is predominantly made up of women.
Entries can also be completed by consultants or colleagues working on behalf of entrants (for example by PR or marketing departments).
The awards will be judged primarily on the achievements of the last 12 months but evidence of long-term success will be considered alongside this.
