What are the judges looking for?
Putting your best foot forward
The judges are going to be reading a lot of submissions. Highlight the need to know information and use language to make sure the judges will not forget your entry.
Words, words, words
We limit the amount of words so you don’t bore the judges. Make sure you present all the right information, but don’t overkill on the word count!
Is it clear?
The judges are loooking for clear-cut explanations. Use snappy, concise language to really make sure that your entry says exactly what it needs to on the tin.
Does it really work?
Are you proving if your entry really works? Do you present results, either quantifiable or qualitative? Present the findings in a way that makes your entry shine.
Past, present & future
The best entry will show the challenge, the solution and the viable future plans. Make sure your entry tells a story to present the complete picture.
Think about who else in your field could compete against you in the same category. Have you highlighted your best attribute that makes you stand out against the rest?

Preparing to win

Asking the right questions
Do you understand everything about the entry questions? Make sure you contact the organiser if you are not clear on something – better to ask than make an assumption!
Proof makes perfect
Are you sure you haven’t missed anything? Read and re-read and get a colleague to check, to make sure that your entry contains no mistakes or typos.
Each entry has the opportunity to provide supporting materials. Use this allocation wisely, via results or endorsements to really demonstrate the power that could win your entry the prize.
Make a note of the key deadlines, give enough time for colleagues to check over and ensure you have sufficient time to put together a standout entry.
