Business Awards – Top Tips

Look what you are good at, what you’ve achieved and your key activities – then choose a category that fits you best.

Start early! An entry takes time so make sure you allow yourself plenty of time so you are not rushed.

Plan your entries – Source the information you need and identify who can help before you start.

Try not to get side-tracked – Keep checking the criteria to make sure your entry is relevant and you understand what the judges are looking for.

Evidence – Don’t make sweeping statements you can’t verify. Use figures, statistics and testimonials to back up your achievements.

Keep to the word count. It’s there for a reason, so make sure you don’t exceed it!

If you are entering more than one award don’t use the same entry. You may be able to reuse some information but it is unlikely the criteria will be the same.

Keep it simple – Try avoiding jargon and unexplained acronyms. Remember, you are an expert in your business, the judges might not be.

Check, check and check again. Leave your entry for a few days and look over it with fresh eyes or better yet, get someone else to check over it.

Make sure you can meet the deadline – Don’t leave it until the last minute and waste your efforts!
