TIPS FOR SUBMITTING A SUCCESSFUL NOMINATION
The key to developing an effective submission is to provide the judging panel with a submission that is clear, concise and with specific information about how the candidate has fulfilled the requirements of the award for which you are nominating them.
As the submitter it is your responsibility to work with the other individuals who are providing support for the nomination to tell your nominee’s story. Remember that the members of the judging panel do not know most of the individuals who are nominated so you need to tell them about how your nominee meets and exceeds the requirements of the award for which they are being considered for. Do not assume that an individual/companies reputation precedes them – you must tell the story.
- Start with a clear, concise, and specific opening statement about what the individual/company does within the industry. Avoid making the sentence vague and full of generalities. This will be used for marketing purposes to inform the public why they were selected in the case your submission was chosen to be a nominee/winner. Every sentence counts.
- Be prepared in such a manner that the requirements of the award match the characteristics of the nominee. Be sure to read the requirements for the award.
- Be concise. Even though each member of the nominating team will likely provide overlapping information about the nominee, it is not useful to mention the same characteristics multiple times. Use the allotted space to offer unique examples that support the nominee’s fit to the award for which they are being nominated.
- Be explicit. It is best to give specific examples of how the nominee has met or exceeded the requirements for the award. It is not useful to offer a statement noting that the nominee is excellent. Data and specific information are required to support the claim. This is particularly true in situations where the nominee has gone above and beyond the expectations of their role within the industry.
- Proofread your submission. It is your responsibility as the submitter to ensure that there are no typos and that the document flows smoothly and tells your nominee’s story.
- Be sure that the materials are focused on the individual/ company being nominated and that all information is from a project/initiative that was developed in 2022/2023.
- End with a concise closing statement that summarizes and reinforces the outstanding attributes of your nominee that are expected for individuals/companies who are chosen for the award.
