Top 5 Tips for Completing a Nomination

• Keep to the word count! Anything over will be ignored – but do take advantage of it.
• Don’t be reticent. The panel of judges are looking for clear examples of how you or your project meet the general and specific eligibility criteria.
• Assume that the panel of judges know nothing about you or your project. Outline the context, what you did, why you did it, what were the challenges and the impact.
• Support your nomination with evidence such as data, statistics, testimonials and feedback.
• Highlight what you have done differently. The panel of judges want to hear about originality, innovation and new approaches.
