Make sure your entry is tailored to the correct categoryIf an identical entry is submitted in two categories, it will only be considered for one – even if it is relevant for both.
Don't leave it to the judges to fill in the gapsMake sure you tell them if you are a prescriber, a pharmacist with a special interest, or that you only work part-time. Remember they can only judge you on what you tell them, so S P E L L it out.
