Entry details
Submissions will be accepted for material that has been published in a newspaper or magazine in the UK, or on a website, between 1st November 2013 and 31st October 2014. No broadcast material is eligible. Individual journalists, teams of journalists or entire publications may enter and entries will be considered for anything from single pieces to entire campaigns. Journalists are welcome to enter more than one campaign, but each campaign needs to be submitted using a separate entry form. Maximum of 3 entries.

Entries should be marked as ‘PAUL FOOT AWARDS 2014’ and must be submitted by post only to:

The PAUL FOOT AWARD
Private Eye
6 Carlisle Street
London W1D 3BN

Entries to be received by 5pm on 10 November 2014. The closing date for entries is final, no extension can be offered. Submissions received after the closing date will not be eligible for entry.

Please submit 2 COPIES of all relevant material (including a covering letter, which should be no longer than two A4 pages, typed and providing an overview of your campaign, eg brief history/context, key challenges, key milestones etc). This entry form should be attached to both copies of your submission.

Please do not send in original work, as anything submitted is non-returnable and will not be formally acknowledged. Copies of articles can be submitted in both A4 and A3, black & white or colour, and should be in the format the articles originally appeared (either in print or online format). If your campaign featured regularly throughout the year, you are not required to submit every story that was published – we would suggest sending in copies of a selection of key coverage that highlights campaign milestones, and listing the other stories that appeared on an A4 sheet, with the date they were published.

Queries should be directed to: Tracey Jennings, Midas Pr, 020 7361 7860, email: tracey.jennings@midaspr.co.uk.

The winning entry will be awarded £5,000, with the runner-up entries each receiving £1,000 at a ceremony in February 2015.

(Note for Collaborative Entries: The prize money is awarded per entry not per person)

Details of the short-listed entries will be published on this website in January 2015. The judges’ decision is final. Good luck!
