I've had an invite. It was really nice to be asked, but I don't think there's any point asking at school if I can go - money's so tight, that they wouldn't pay the supply cover. The only voting is when you can vote to nominate someone for their resources. The shortlist's probably been decided by now, and there's a panel who choose the winners. The emails that went out today weren't for anybody up for an award - just a thank you for uploading resources. The cynical side of me, says that maybe TES are inviting people because it's very expensive to book a table, and schools can't afford it this year. I went last year, because one of my resources got onto the shortlist. I went with a friend from work and we had a lovely day - champagne reception, lovely dinner, and all in a very posh hotel. Alexander Armstrong hosted it, and he was very funny.
