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.

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!
