Submitting a

The process for submitting a project involves providing some basic project information, and then completing a set of screening questions designed to share the ways in which you have addressed resilience throughout the lifecycle of your project.

Top-performing projects will be invited to provide some more in-depth information before a semi-finalist assessment to determine which projects are selected to be put forward for consideration by our awards panel of internationally renowned experts.

What you will need

In order to complete the submission process you’ll need to:

  • Highlight an energy-focused project with a preference for impact in at least one other sector.
  • Provide some basic project information by answering some specific project questions, which are split into two parts:
      • Submission questions involve telling us some basic information about your project and giving us a sense of its purpose and potential. This is also where we apply the eligibility criteria.
      • Screening questions come next; there are 25 mostly yes/no questions, with space for a short justification for your answer. There is space at the end for longer free text where you can add further information if you feel the questionnaire has not covered something important you feel we should take into consideration regarding how you have incorporated resilience into your project.
  • Convey a good understanding of how the project considered and improved resilience at every stage; from initial concept through to design and delivery. You may need to get input from various members of your project team. There is flexibility in the process to save your work, engage partners, collect information, and return to the submission.

We’re looking for a wide variety of examples of how resilience has been realized in project delivery; small and large projects, community-led projects as well as industry and government-led projects. We want to see examples from different contexts, all over the globe – from remote rural locations to megacities. The main thing we want to see is how your project has improved the resilience of individuals and communities – particularly underserved and vulnerable populations.

What does entering involve

What next?

Once you’ve completed our initial submission and screening stage, your entry will be evaluated and if it meets our requirements, your project will be showcased on our website.

The best submissions will be invited through to the semi-finalist stage where we will ask you to answer three further questions which cover your approach to resilience in more detail, with answers of 500-1000 words.

Semi-finalists are guaranteed to be profiled on the Resilience Realized website. The top semi-finalists will be put forward for consideration by our awards panel, made up of internationally renowned experts. The awards panel will select one overall winner as well as a number of runners up, to be announced later in 2022.
