The video can be made using any props, graphics, examples, images or delivery style that you think will best demonstrate your innovative or inspirational work.

The judges will then select FIVE finalists, who face the public vote. This vote will decide the TWO Power Players winners!

The top five videos will then be shared on social media for the public to choose their favourite. The videos will also be showcased during the Electrical Design & Install Expo (ED&I) - held at the NEC, Birmingham on the 6-7 September.

The winners will be announced on Day 2 of the ED&I Expo (7 September).
