Entries that do not comply with the category criteria will be marked down or rejected. Please check the category criteria to ensure you are eligible to enter. Judges reserve the right to move any entries that they feel would better fit another category at the awards.

Entries will be judged by a team of senior independent figures within the air cargo industry.
