10 TOP TIPS FOR A BRILLIANT ENTRY

1)    Answer the brief
You should clearly state what your objectives were and how they were met. Make your point, show us the proof of how effective it was, and explain how this was executed.

2)    Explain your decisions
Full explanations of why and how key decisions were made in the planning of your campaign will help judges to understand how conclusions and results were reached. 

3)    Get the client on board
A client comment can add weight to your argument and marks to your entry. You can utilise your client’s knowledge on certain aspects, such as calculating and validating payback.

4)    Choose your category wisely
There may be more than one category which seems relevant to your campaign, so make sure you focus on what you are most proud of. Feel free to enter multiple categories with the same campaign if you wish, but please remember to do a little redrafting to ensure your entry is category specific each time.

5)    Tell us a story
Develop a sense of narrative. Use clear and concise language that is easy to understand and engaging for the reader.

6)    Be truthful
Stick to the facts.

7)    Proof-read your entry
Consistent mistakes will undermine the quality of your paper.  A fresh eye will be able to ensure the copy flows well, correct any potential grammatical errors and spot anything that seems unclear or superfluous.

8)   Do not exceed the word count
It’s there for a reason. 

9)    Use visuals
Featuring images and charts within your entry can help to enhance your paper and aid understanding.

10)  Meet the deadline
Give yourself plenty of time to do justice to your work and to complete your entry by the given deadline.
