Export Impact For Good

Countries / Territories

What is the entry process

  • This year’s awards follow a two-stage process:

    The Stage 1 Entry Form allows entrants to submit an export development initiative for evaluation, together with their contact information and authorisation to enter. At this stage you may submit up to five different initiatives. Please complete a separate Stage 1 Entry Form for each initiative entered into the Awards.

    Stage 1 entries will be assessed to ensure the initiative fits the core criteria. Qualifying entrants will then be invited to submit a more comprehensive Stage 2 entry. If more than one entry from a TPO goes forward, the TPO will need to decide which initiative to submit for Stage 2.


    The WTPO Awards Entry Guide provides detailed information about the entry process and evaluation criteria.
