This year, The One Show will be accepting entries in two separate submission periods. Entries submitted by the first deadline of November 15th will be judged in December, with shortlisted work announced in January. This gives entrants the opportunity to submit work while it is first to market and top of mind and allows our judges to view work in smaller batches, affording them more time to consider each piece.
