Frequently asked Questions


How to get awards for your business?

Identify relevant awards aligned with your industry and objectives. Gather necessary information and metrics to support your nomination. Customise your nomination for each award, highlighting unique achievements. Ensure your application is error-free and impactful. If you don’t have the time or copy writing skills in-house to complete an award nomination, consider getting some external support.


Why enter business awards?

Awards validate your achievements and expertise — boosting credibility, reputation and brand awareness. Entering business awards sets you apart from your competitors by showcasing unique strengths and successes. Recognition boosts team morale and pride, fostering a positive work culture.  

Participating in awards helps to benchmark your performance against industry standards and best practices. Award wins are powerful marketing tools, opening doors to new partnerships and helping to reach a wider circle within your targeted audience.


How to write a winning award submission?

Hook your audience from the beginning — kick off your award submission with an engaging lead, and don’t be afraid to show creativity. Tell a compelling story whilst weaving in the required information to suit the questions. Load up on metrics and evidence. Provide your audience with as much collateral to support your submission as possible. Make it easily readable for your audience, enough to allow them to communicate to others seamlessly.  

Proof, Proof, Proof!

Ensure your submission is read by multiple fresh pairs of eyes to pick up on any small mistakes — it takes a team to craft a submission.


How to nominate a business for an award?

Give yourself plenty of time and schedule the awards entry in advance.  

Structure the narrative to tell a compelling story and bring the nomination to life. Include trending topics in your industry.  This might be AI (Artificial Intelligence) and emerging technology or ESG (Environmental, Social, Governance). Are there any challenges and pain points within your industry that you have successfully addressed? Can you bring those to your nomination? Compile the data, design supporting materials, proof your entry to eliminate any mistakes, and press the button.


How to choose the right business awards?

Always check the application in the first instance through extensive research. Does the application ask rigorous, relevant questions with specific metrics? Is it clear and transparent as to what the panel/public are judging/measuring? If the application form doesn't rigorously examine that, then it's most likely not a credible award. If you are considering adding award nominations to your marketing programme and you’re not sure which awards to go for, it can be helpful to get external advice.


What to wear to business awards ceremony?

This is a question we are frequently asked following an award win – and it's also a fun conversation to have! Choosing the right outfit for an awards ceremony is your chance to represent yourself and your brand in the best possible light.
