There is no charge to enter.
The judges will be looking for outstanding examples of best practice during the past 12 months, however we will accept submissions based on projects, initiatives or endeavours that commenced prior to the past twelve months, as long as core activity has taken place during this main period of focus.
You may enter as many categories as you wish, but you must complete a different submission for each category.
No, please choose the most appropriate category for each entry. If you are unsure which category to choose, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Yes, if the entries are distinctive and unrelated you may submit more than one. Otherwise, we advise you to combine the best elements of each to form a stronger single entry.
Once you have submitted your entry you will receive an email confirming your institution name, the nominee and the category you have entered. This email will also contain a unique Nomination Code that will be used in future THE Awards Asia 2020 correspondence relating to your entry.
If you do not receive your confirmation email, please email THEAwardsAsia@timeshighereducation.com.
