About the awards

The Utility Week Awards are the gold standard for the UK’s utilities

Year after year, we recognise and celebrate the fantastic work that goes into keeping the lights on, the taps running and the gas flowing. We receive hundreds of entries from water companies, energy suppliers, energy networks and their supply chains

New judging process and entry guidance for 2017

  • As the number of entries keeps growing, we’ve introduced a new two-stage judging process to ensure that every entry continues to receive in-depth consideration from a panel of industry leaders.
  • Each category now has a lead judge and with some of the biggest names in the business on the judging panel, the bar is set high.
  • We know how important detailed entry guidance and feedback are to driving best practice. To this end, we have launched a new entry guide setting out the criteria for each award. Download here.
  • We also promise to provide every shortlisted entrant with a benchmarking report detailing the strengths and weaknesses of their entry in relation to their peers, based on feedback from our judges. We will publish detailed case studies of the winning entries over the course of 2018, so everyone can see what it takes to win one of our coveted awards.

We look forward to receiving your entry. If you would like any further guidance do not hesitate to get in touch

As ever, the awards ceremony at the Grosvenor House Hotel, Park Lane, on the 11 December will be a celebration of all your hard work; a Christmas party; and a night to remember.
