Top tips for entering the East Midlands Bricks Awards 2019

The East Midlands Bricks Awards, celebrating the outstanding work of those behind the changing landscape of our region, are back for 2019 and nominations are open.

Here are 5 top tips for a successful entry:

  1. Make you nomination compelling.
  2. Less is more – as often judges have to read a large number of nomination forms, no one wants to read “waffle” or an excessive use of jargon in an award entry, so be concise and specific with what you write.
  3. Use facts, statistics and key examples that support why a project, person or business should win an award, as they will make any statement you make much stronger.
  4. Make sure to read the criteria carefully to be sure that your nomination does in fact fit what is being looked for. Why not reflect on the projects that won last year to get an idea of whether your nomination reflects a certain category’s requirements.
  5. Finally, proofread your nomination and submit it on time!
