Entry Hints and Tips
Below are some hints, tips and recommendations to assist you when writing your award submissions.
READ THE ENTRY CRITERIA/GUIDELINES:
- Read through the entry criteria carefully so that you are clear on what the judges will be requiring for each category.
- Are you entering your company/project/product into the right category? Read through all of the entry criteria and highlight those categories that are a good fit.
- Ensure that you provide all the information/ materials requested.
- Use the online submission platform but it may be a good idea to write and save your entry in a word document first. All entries must be submitted in the correct format in order to be accepted.
READ THE ENTRY FORM CAREFULLY:
- Before writing any of your submission, check the character count. The Offsite Award submissions include spaces in its character count not word count – so keep that in mind when writing your entry!
- Make sure that you are clear about what you need to do, what information you require and who you need to contact for the information.
- Got any queries? Do not hesitate to call the Offsite Awards team on 01743 290001 or email email@example.com
KEEP THE MESSAGES SIMPLE & CLEAR:
- Keep the message simple and clear – do not make the submission too complicated.
- More words do not necessarily mean a superior submission.
- Avoid using unnecessary technical terms which may not be understood by everyone.
- When submitting your Supporting Documents, ensure that the file name is clearly labelled. Especially if you refer to the specific attachment within the submission.
FACTS & FIGURES:
- Ensure that you provide the key data requested.
- Judges will seek hard evidence and data to back up the claims within the written submission.
- Images are an important part of your entry
- Judges want to see the before and after shots as well as the work in progress so that they have visual aids for the entire submission/project progress
- Product and technology images are important
- High quality images will be required by the organisers for promotion should you reach the shortlist.
PLAN YOUR TIME:
- Do not leave your submission writing and data gathering until it is too late – remember that the submission deadline is 28 May 2021. Plan ahead, working on a draft of your ideas and plan who you need to contact to gather the relevant evidence.
- Register early to access the online submission system and raise any questions that you have with the Awards team.
- Leave yourself time to proof read your entry, paying special attention to your Entrant & Project Name as these will be how you are listed in any promotion should you make the shortlist.
