For your award entry to be successful you must be prepared – from initial researching to figuring out how to ensure your award entry can be a winning one.

With only two weeks to go until entries close, we highlight some of the key aspects of award submissions for you to consider as you prepare to submit your entries!

Plan!

Evaluate your projects over the past 12 months, review data, consider rational arguments, refer to testimonials and reviews – all of which can be a part of your submission or supporting documentation.  Providing evidence of your strong track record and data which can be trusted by those who will be judging all count, but gathering your relevant evidence to back up your awards entry is key!

How can my award entry be a winning one?

When writing your entry carefully consider the criteria for the awards category, what are the judges looking for?  What can make it a winning entry? Ensure your entry covers all of the criteria identified for the category you’re entering and that you’re providing hard evidence to back up the claims you’ve made!

Maximise your evidence!

Successful award submissions are all about proving high standards, so look for things you can measure or compare to highlight your achievements.  Maximise your evidence and the information you have! Can you show growth? Development? Improvements?  Results? Use data which highlights your detailed facts.

Call on clients, colleagues and partners to give testimonials in support of your entry.  Tap into your network and your team.  Use evidence of the projects and the achievements, and if it’s an award based around individuals and teams, bring your people – and indeed your entry – to life!  You can submit videos and films, as well as supporting documentation – be creative!

Promote it!

Awards offer one of the best PR opportunities that exists, both internally and externally to your organisation.  Promote you’re entering the awards, and if you’re a shortlisted finalist – congratulations!

Write a blog, tell your network using social media, email your team and send out a press release.  If you win – do all of the above, and organise your shelf or cabinet for your awards to remind people of your glorious achievement!
