  • Late entries (up to 48 hours) incur an admin fee of €200 per category and need to be paid upfront. Asking us to edit your nomination after entries close also incurs this fee. So don’t be late!

  • It is not up to us to tell you what categories to enter. You’re a a big boy or girl.
  • Our contact email is team@sockies.ie but we won’t answer emails about extensions or exceptions and you may not get an answer if we think your question has already been answered here.
  • Be careful when copying and pasting with the word count. Delete any white spaces before first and last words. Links are counted by our word counter. Our counter over-counts so consider max word count at about 95%. If it says you are over by 4 words, delete 4 words. We get most questions about this bit. Stay strong!
