The entry should be clear It is better to give one example in detail and list others than attempt to cover too many topics in too much detail.
Give a background The judges will not necessarily know about your sector or business, so a brief summary of these will help them place you in context. This might include size, turnover, recent issues in the sector, nature of business and so on.
State the challenges All applications really consist of a challenge or series of challenges that have successfully been met.
Tell the story Once the challenges are identified, you need to tell the judges how you met or overcame them. This is the most important part of the entry, it explains the actions, the issues and the reason that this is a potential winning entry.
Use results Judges look for evidence in success and innovation, this can be demonstrated in a number of ways but simple facts and figures often tell the story best.
Summarise and make the case – why should you win? This is the point to say and not be shy!
