Tips to  writing a Winning Award Submission.

Get the ball gowns ready and the tuxedos dusted off, the NRF awards 2018 are just a few months away. With the closing date looming for submissions (28th September) here are some tips that may help you to tell your story, showcase your achievements, and gain recognition for all your hard work for the year gone by.

We have listened to past judges to get you the best tips and guidance on how to write a winning entry.

 

So before you begin to write take a minute to consider the following!

 

Introduction

The introduction should set the stage for the rest of your submission. It should hook the judges in and make them enthusiastic to want to read the rest of the application. This is an opportunity to make you memorable and to stand out from the rest.

Answering the questions.

Carefully read each question and see which ones have the most marks allocated. Answer all the questions and ensure you are answering what has been asked to achieve the highest score.  “Remember this is a numbers game, the highest score wins”.

To help you stay on track put down the main points you want to address for each question. You can then elaborate and expand on each point. Most of the judges will not know your agency or how great it is, therefore, you have to ensure that your answers explain why you deserve to win.

A wining entry will be engaging and memorable. Showcase your achievements and back them up with testimonials. Remember testimonials validate what you are saying and gives you added credibility.

Stick to the word count and try not to lose the reader in a sea of text. Where possible use logo’s, photos etc to make the submission more memorable, but be cautious, embedded text will add to your word count.

Always write in plain English and avoid jargon that is used internally that way nothing gets lost in translation- if the judges do not understand what it means they cannot mark you accordingly.

DO NOT INCLUDE WEBSITE LINKS – Other than the online award all judges mark submissions in hard copy. They do not access links no matter how great you tell them the information on it is.

If you are submitting an application for an individual you should inform them and get their input this helps to personalise it for the individual.

Closing

Your closing statement should capture the passion you feel for your company and why you should win. Remember the judges are reading hundreds of entries you need to convince them as to why it should be you.

Finally, print it to make sure it is laid out as you want it and most importantly proof read it!

BEST OF LUCK!

Dear Member,
 
I want to let you know in plenty of time that the annual conference next year will be of the earlier time of 14TH MARCH.  The event will take place at the Clayton Burlington Hotel and it will be a full day event of plenary with expert speakers, breakout sessions, and masterclasses. We need to build on the platform of the reputation we received from WEC and make this annual Conference one that is of interest not just to our members but to your Clients, Government, international delegates, and the general HR and business communities.
 
The Irish recruitment industry is making a name for itself as thought leaders worldwide, and by hosting an annual World Class Conference where we can showcase the service, professionalism and growth of our industry and businesses will be of benefit to all members. The long term aim is to make it the recruitment conference of the year to be seen at. This will be another great milestone for NRF and its members.
 
The cost will be treble of what we usually spend (not to mention the speaker’s fees) therefore we intend to charge members a fee of €125 per head and non members €250 per head. This price will include a full sit down lunch and a walking breakfast.
 
Reminders will go out regularly over the next few months and registration will open in December.
 
Kindest regards,
 
Ger
