Award entries

How to prepare a winning award entry

Awards are a fantastic way to obtain much-deserved recognition for your organisation. They provide an independent ‘seal of approval’ which will help you win new business, attract fresh talent and give your current team a boost.

So ask yourself, how’s your trophy cabinet looking? Do you read about the regional business awards or industry ‘gongs’ that your competitors have won and think, “that should have been us”?

If so, we can help!

How’s your trophy cabinet looking?



Perhaps you’re thinking about entering the Yorkshire Post Excellence Awards? Maybe you’ve contemplated the Pay & Benefits Awards? Or you could be deserving of a Construction News Specialist Award? We’ve had client success with them all, however it’s important to find the contest that’s right for you.

To catch the eye of the judges, the entry must be crammed with facts, figures and evidence that satisfy every single piece of category criteria. Third party endorsements and examples of work will also add weight to your submission. But there’ll usually be a word count, so the content needs to be scrutinised – if it doesn’t add value, it shouldn’t go in!

Compiling an award winning entry



Some award schemes are more credible than others, so we usually start by determining which are right for our clients. We then take care of the entire entry process, conducting all relevant briefings, drafting the content, collating supporting materials, obtaining approvals and sending the finished submission. The process cannot be rushed and it helps for it to be managed by an external party with a fresh pair of eyes.

If and when our clients are shortlisted, we maximise the exposure surrounding the success with related PR, blogs and social media activity. And when our clients are crowned the champion, that’s a whole new story to tell!
