Having an industry award next to your organization’s name can bring good publicity. But not only you get visibility and recognition in the media, awards also build your reputation and provide you with legitimacy and authority. Accolades bring third-party endorsement which can lead your business to potential new clients and customers. We are sharing some insights with you that will help you secure your next win:
- Make your entry interesting: Submitting for an award often requires writing summary of 1,000 – 2,000 words. The organizing committee usually has a specific criteria and format in which they would like the entry to be submitted. Keep your answers concise and to the point. Make sure you read the question carefully and cover every aspect in your answer. Remember to insert keywords from the question into your answer.
- Highlight Success: It is necessary that you showcase what you have achieved with a specific campaign over a certain period. Before submitting your entry, ensure that you are providing correct facts and figures. There is no need to exaggerate the numbers. Also remember to attach all the additional documents such as timeline, press releases and clippings report.
- Keep it simple: Be real and authentic with your submission. Avoid using long sentences and professional jargon in your answers. Try keeping it simple and as specific as possible. Write an interesting story which will keep the judges engaged and highlight your innovation and passion.
- Proofread: Finally, once you are confident about the quality of your content, ask someone else to proofread your submission to make sure you have covered everything in your answers. Get it checked by someone who knows the company inside out and then by someone who doesn’t know anything about your brand. This way you will have insights from both perspectives.
