Maximise your category submission!

Take a look at the list of categories for 2019, this year we have refreshed them to ensure that whatever your skills there is one for you. Don’t forget too, that you can enter more than one!

Location, location, location

Ensure your award entry is relevant to the Americas – if your submission relates to work carried out globally, do make sure you highlight projects that have been carried out from or into the Americas.

It's all in the detail 

It might seem an obvious point, but before you begin writing make sure that you read the questions carefully. It might help to underline the key points and later, review your answers to ensure that you are addressing those specific issues. 

Back up your claims with evidence. Get straight to the point and tell the judges what you have done and then explain why there was a need for it and finally, how this has benefited your organization or clients.

Keep the key criteria in mind

Along with an overall review of the submission as a whole, each entry is judged using a fairly complex system of scoring against the following criteria, so always keep these points in mind:

  • Innovation
  • Strategy
  • Results
  • Impact of the work

Make your achievements stand out

Remember that the judges will be reading a tremendous amount of material and although they are extremely dedicated and will read everything carefully, if you can make it easier for them to see the pertinent information quickly and easily, it can only be to your benefit.
