Unique prize for rail's 'Subcontractor of the year'

Enter the ‘Subcontractor of the year’ category and win an editorial feature worth £5,000

Without subcontractors, rates of innovation and successful delivery would be greatly reduced. There are literally thousands of subcontractors working in partnership with the rail industry on a plethora of projects across the UK every day. Without subcontractors, projects run the risk of being stifled by a one-size-fits-all solution. Subcontractors combined are by far the largest employer with a wealth of expertise and willingness to innovate every day. The rail industry needs you and the UKRIA judges are looking forward to your entries.

This category has been split into three sub-sections for SMEs of varying sizes, as defined by the European Commission:

  • Micro: A company with fewer than 10 employees, a turnover of less than €2m or a balance sheet total of less than €2m
  • Small: A company with fewer than 50 employees, a turnover of less than €10m or a balance sheet total of less than €10m
  • Medium-sized: A company with fewer than 250 employees, a turnover of less than €50m or a balance sheet total of less than €43m

The winning entry from each of the sub-categories detailed above will win an editorial feature worth £5,000. The editorial feature comprises of an interview with the editor of Rail Technology Magazine (RTM) at a site of your choice accompanied by photographer. The content captured from the day will be turned into an amazing double page spread and published in an issue of RTM of your choice and read by its 94,103 readers, the article will also be published online where it can also be seen by the 30,015 website visitors every month.
