Top tips for entries

Ahead of this year’s awards season we wanted to share our top tips for preparing an award winning entry.

  1. Create your entry as if you’re a judge and you are judging it. Think about what a judge would want to see. Keep them engaged and try as best you can you convey your personality within the entry. This is your time to shine, so make yourselves seen!
  2. Judges will score your entry against the criteria listed in the award category. So it’s vital to read it in detail and make sure you address each of the criteria listed. If you don’t, you’re leaving points on the table
  3. It’s important that results are measurable and back up your entry. Consider the context you’re presenting them in and show how you’re the best and deserve to win that category!
  4. It’s not about the number of supporting files you add, it’s about their quality. It’s key you consider which supporting documents you supply to the judges and make sure they support your entry. You can combine things into one document to save upload space and make the judges’ lives easier
  5. Don’t be afraid to contact the team if you need help or have any questions. While we’re not able to directly help you complete your entry, we’re on-hand to make sure you submit the best entry possible! We can answer any queries about the awards process or criteria for submissions – email [email protected].
