TEST VALLEY BUSINESS AWARDS 2019
TIPS FOR WRITING A GREAT ENTRY
Entering the Test Valley Business Awards is a great way to promote your business – to clients, partners and employees.
What’s more, if you win an award you’ll receive up to 12 months of extensive publicity across Test Valley, as well as a lovely trophy, certificate, and marketing material.
To help your chances of winning here are a few hints and tips.
Read the entry criteria carefully. Make sure you are eligible to enter the particular award category before entering as many categories as you want. There is no restriction on how many categories you can enter. If your business is eligible for all six, please enter all six!
The judging criteria are there to guide your entries. Please make sure your entries are relevant to and relate as closely as possible to the judging criteria as this is how the judges will compare and assess entries. Think of them as questions to be answered. Don’t be afraid to use each point as a subheading to structure your entry.
Give relevant detail
Our judges – the Awards’ Gold Sponsors – represent Test Valley businesses, just like you. For award categories that receive over 50 entries, our judges may not be able to visit or contact every entrant. Therefore, it’s really important that you make your entry stand out by providing as much relevant detail as possible; the 200 – 250 word count is a guide. Please write more if you want!
