FMC awards free to enter for a limited time!

With FMC awards currently completely free to enter, find out everything you need to know about how to enter and the important dates for your diary.

The awards season is just around the corner! All FMC awards are open for registration, meaning it’s officially time to start working on your entries.

And with the awards now completely free to enter, the process has never been easier.

To enter the awards for free, all you have to do is make sure you register before the end of June.

Content director, Guy Hiscott, said: ‘It’s easy for us, as awards organisers, to take the value of winning (or being shortlisted) for granted: we hear time and again what it does to boost team morale, patient uptake and the profile of a practice.

‘But we must be mindful of the wider economy too. Dentistry doesn’t exist in a bubble!

‘Even the smallest investment in the practice can feel daunting when every penny counts – which is why I’m so pleased to announce free entry to all our awards for a limited time.

‘I look forward to seeing the entries roll in – and celebrating the incredible work done by UK practices at the ceremonies later this year!’
