Hints & Tips

Some pointers from our awards team to help you on your way!



  • Plan ahead: Draft an outline of what you want to get across before you start writing.
  • Create a story: Judges like a clear narrative. Tell us Who, What, Where, Why & When.
  • Don't ignore the fine print: Ensure you are covering all of the criteria for your category/ies. Keep to the maximum word count. 
  • Choose support material carefully. There is so much temptation to upload everything. Don't do it. Choose the best and most evocative stats, images and testimonials.
  • Think like a judge. The judges might be reading anywhere from 15 to 20 submissions. Put yourself in their shoes before submitting a final draft.  Make it an easy read with clear objectives.
  • Submit on time to avoid a late penalty fee!
