Entry Rules and terms

Entries must qualify for the period of eligibility as indicated within each category judging criteria.

The written part of the submission must be no longer than six A4 pages (minimum point size 10).

CIBSE Yorkshire (and CIBSE in the case of BPA entries) accepts no liability for any inaccurate information contained within the submitted entry as it is the responsibility of the applicant to provide accurate information.

Entrants giving false or misleading information will be excluded from the awards competition. If an award is given and it is subsequently found that the entry information is false or misleading, CIBSE Yorkshire (and CIBSE in the case of BPA entries) reserve the right to withdraw the award.

CIBSE Yorkshire (and CIBSE in the case of BPA entries) reserves the right to use entry material submitted in published form unless requested by the entrant not to.

Whilst you (or the licensors) continue to own the copyright in all works forming part of your entry, by submitting an entry you consent to our use of submitted photographic works in any publication, whether or not connected to the CIBSE Yorkshire/CIBSE Building Performance Awards, and you now waive all moral rights in such photographic works. We may allow third parties (e.g. journalists) to use such works for CIBSE Yorkshire/CIBSE purposes. If a third party owns the copyright in such works, you confirm that you have obtained their consent to our use and a waiver of their moral rights for these purposes.

By entering CIBSE Yorkshire awards, you agree to a representative attending the awards ceremony, in Leeds in November 2018, where the winners in each category will be announced and presented with a trophy. If no representative is available, CIBSE Yorkshire reserves the right to nominate a person to collect the award on your behalf. If you choose for your entry to go forward to the 2019 Building Performance Awards, you also agree to the same terms, but for a representative to be attend the ceremony in London during February 2019, or for CIBSE to nominate a person to collect the award on your behalf.

Judges’ reserve the right, without prior consent of the entrants, to move entries to different categories if it is appropriate.

The Judges’ decision on all shortlisted entries and winners is final and no discussion or correspondence will be entered in to. Please also note that due to the high volume of entries received it is not possible to provide individual feedback for entries that are not shortlisted.

Entrants found to be resubmitting the same entry documents for the CIBSE BPA awards as a previous year will be excluded from the entry process. All entries must be completed on the individual category entry form for 2019 and any entries where the details provided are the same as a previous year will be excluded from the entry process. Any entries that include a project/product that has previously been entered must show how this project/product has developed since it was last entered and provide appropriate data to support this.
