Give your award entry an even better chance of success…
… with a relevant, positive submission.
One of the best ways to tell your potential clients about your brilliance is to enter and win awards. But there a couple of problems:
- You just don’t have the time to write the awards entry form. Crikey, you have enough to do as it is. Writing a lengthy awards entry with specific criteria is just one thing too much.
- You HATE writing about yourself in a way that sounds uber-positive. You think it sounds cringey, too try-hard or boastful.
Here’s a solution. Get me to write your awards entries for you. I write methodically and enthusiastically, telling those judges just why YOU should be the winner of that lovely shiny award.
How does my award entry writing service work?
Here’s my guideline process:
We’ll spend some time getting to know each other. It’s really important that I understand your business and audience before I start writing for you. You’ll probably find I spend lots of time asking you questions you’d never thought you’d hear. I’ll give you a couple of briefing forms to complete – we’ll talk through this together.
I’ll get close to the entry format and learn from previous winning entries where possible.
I’ll ask you to send me lots of information about why you believe you’re qualified to win. Facts and figures are incredibly useful as are client testimonials because these demonstrate your success in real terms.
Schedule and write.
We’ll agree a schedule to work to and then I’ll get going. I’ll deliver your entry submission to you ahead of the submission deadline so you have time to read through, check you’re happy with it and request any edits.
Submit and cross your fingers!
You submit your entry and keep those fingers crossed. Keep me in the loop and tell me how you get on! If you need a bio to support your shortlisting, let me know as this is something I can help with too.
Awards Entry Copywriting Questions
Will a professionally written entry guarantee success?
Nope. But it will make your case stronger. That’s because I write persuasively and clearly. I’ll tell the judges how you met the criteria in simple, unbiased language that puts the focus on the facts, not the fluff.
For the record, I’ve helped several talented individuals scoop awards or be listed as highly commended.
How long does an awards entry take to write?
The entries themselves don’t take long. What does take time is gathering all the relevant information and placing it into a compelling structure.
I suggest a 2-week turnaround from full brief to final document. If you want to enter an award tomorrow and you’re only just thinking of briefing me, then it’s a no-can-do I’m afraid.
Will you edit an awards entry I’ve written?
I won’t edit an entry you have written but I can use your draft as part of my briefing process.
How will you write in a way that sounds like me?
The emphasis in awards entries is not humour, entertainment or anything else fun… it’s about presenting facts clearly. For that reason, I tend not to let branding guidelines influence my writing here. If you believe tone of voice is important, then we can find a way to represent it.
What if I’m not happy with the awards entry you’ve written?
I’ll be taking the information you give me and applying it to the (normally strict) criteria of the judging panel. This doesn’t tend to leave too much room for error. But if you think I’ve left something out or (ooops) you forgot to tell me about something, then tell me and I’ll do what I can to get the entry on track.
I allow one round of edits for awards entries.
How much do you charge to write an awards entry?
There’s quite a lot of variety in award entry formats. So for this reason I quote on a case-by-case basis.
But as a guideline, my prices begin at £75 per entry.
