Top tips for writing a winning award entry

At Carpenter Box, we’ve won our fair share of awards over the past decade, both regionally and nationally. Here are our top tips for writing your winning entry.

  1. Read the brief: Make sure you read exactly what questions the judges want to be answered and provide what is asked of you.
  2. Provide evidence: Don’t just say you’re the best, you need to demonstrate why!
  3. Make use of supporting documents: Once you’ve answered the questions, this is your chance to showcase what your business really is all about. Include quotes, infographics, photos, videos, and anything that helps support your story; you can be as creative as you want.
  4. Tell a story: Listing facts and figures won’t capture anyone’s attention. Be sure to show your personality and what makes you unique.
  5. Take time: Be sure to spend time gathering evidence, answering the questions and having your entry proofed by different people. Entries done quickly are easy to spot!
