When reading an entry, the judges consider various elements that need to be included, so below are a few tips and hints to help you when writing yours. You do, of course, need to take in to account the category you are entering and only apply the points that are applicable to your case.

Explain how your business has demonstrated success by including the following:

  • financial results
  • customer benefits
  • employee benefits
  • community benefits
  • investor benefits

Also, please try to:

  • Clearly state success measures and try not to leave any gaps in your data (i.e. don’t cherry pick which figures/stats you provide as the judges won’t have the full picture).
  • Explain how and why you identified a need for your product/service/change/initiative and what planning/development went in to it.
