What makes a winning entry?

Work should have the potential to create significant impact for the sector. This impact will demonstrate a combination of positive outcomes. Impact might be achieved by the growth of the organisation applying, or by the spread of their ideas to its members or other organisations.  Applicants should also show good governance and management.
