How do I enter?
Partners are invited to fill in a short entry form telling us about your/ your organisation's activities to promote different modes of transport as part of your workplace/ campus travel plan. There is no need for long essays or paragraphs! Simply tell us what you've achieved and how you achieved it and your results will speak volumes.
When is the Deadline for Entry?

The deadline for entry into the Smarter Travel Awards 2015 is Friday the 13th of February 2015 - those who are superstitious can submit before that if you prefer! Your Facilitator will work with you on your action plan and your entry to make sure you are awards-ready.

A Picture Says a Thousand Words...

Remember to take photos of all of your actions and events over the coming months so you have a colourful and visual entry. Shortlisted Partners will be invited to display their case study at the awards ceremony.
