TIPS FOR ENTRY

  1. Keep it simple : Be clear and specific, with a concisely explained entry. Include some background and outline your objectives and strategy. Provide examples and focus on a tangible case study approach
  2. Stick to the word count : Keep your entry within the word count (bullet points can help) and don’t include too much extra literature. Judges have to be fair to all entries, so content above the word count will be excluded
  3. Include relevant supporting material only if needed : You are encouraged to provide evidence fitting the criteria through supporting documents, to help your entry only if necessary. Try and explain it in the allocated answer section
  4. Select your category and follow the entry guidelines
  5. Consider multiple categories : Take a look at the other categories your entry could be relevant to. As long as it meets the criteria, you can adapt your entry for additional categories and create more chances to win an award. If you decide to enter more categories, tailor your entries – don’t just copy and paste the same content
  6. Be passionate : Ask someone objective to read your entry. If they aren’t impressed, our judges probably won’t be either. Explain why you are passionate about your entry and why people should care about it. Provide context so the judges can understand the scale of what you have achieved
  7. Start early : Give yourself the time to do your entry justice, with a really solid submission. Don’t leave it too late and be forced to rush something – start now, so you can deliver by the August 21, 2019 entry deadline
