Nominations are now closed

 Applicants will be judged on a range of criteria including the strength of their portfolio, their passion and commitment to freelancing, business acumen and creativity and the distinctiveness of their offering.

There will be prize money up for grabs for the winners of the individual awards.  All finalists will win one-year IPSE membership.

If you are shortlisted for an individual award, you will also need to attend the Judging Day which is now postponed until the Autumn. A new date will be announced soon.

Freelancing Project of the Year 

 

£1500 cash prize for the winner.

This awards celebrates specific successful freelancer projects rather than the business as a whole.  You do not have to be freelancing full time, it can be part of a side hustle business alongside full-time work or studying – but it must be a project and not a person.  Examples could include an event, a particularly successful client project, campaign, fundraiser or other piece of work.

Ambassador of the Year

The IPSE Ambassador of the Year Award demonstrates the ambassador’s dedication to supporting freelancing and the self-employed.
