Bear in mind that this year, the entry is the first part of the judging process, where you need to convince judges, who will not know the detail as intimately as you do. The second part of the process will be a face to face ‘pitch’ with our judges, meaning that you can talk about the strengths of your entry directly to them.

For your entry, it is important to set out a structured pitch, with evidence to back up any claims. The two main criticisms in judges’ feedback from past awards is ‘Did not provide enough a strong enough argument as to why they should win’ and ‘No data or evidence to back up claims.’ Now, with the face-to-face round, you have an opportunity to convince them directly why you should win!
