Writing a winning submission – the 4i’s


What will catch the judges’ interest? Judges may read a number of entries so think about starting with a clear statement that sets the scene and makes it clear why you are a worthy recipient of the award then expand from there


What makes your story unique? Carefully choose words that can help you articulate this – was it the first, the only, the biggest etc


This is possibly the most important part – make sure you include evidence to back up what you claimed to have achieved. Give actual figures, customer reviews and consider including graphs.  Ensure the judges are truly blown away by your achievements!


A picture is worth a thousand words – consider the careful use of images, charts and diagrams to get your message across


Nominations close 15 March 2020
