Who doesn’t like to win an award! Especially when it comes to corporate, awards play a vital role in building a better reputation and exposure in the global market. And thus, there are many corporations that initiate their names in award entries to win an exclusive brand image out of the same.
But do you really believe that is it going to really easy to write an award-winning entry? Of course not! In fact, to win corporate awards, the most important factor of judgment is the award-winning entry summary. So let’s understand the procedure of writing an entry for the corporate award.
Steps to writing an award-winning entry:-
Step 1: Select the participation
A corporate must select the type of award they want to participate in. You will be provided the entire list of awards that you can select from.
Step 2: Details of the individual and company
Now you will be asked the name of representative for the award along with few secondary names that can co-present the primary names given to them. In addition to the same, one needs to provide entire information about the corporate along with contact details.
Make sure that your company information is accurate. At this step, you will also be asked some background questioning where you must reason why you have applied for this particular award entry.
Step3: Questions related to Award
This is the most crucial step in the entire procedure, as the reputation of the company in front of judges is based on these background checks. You will be asked some background question about the firm along with judging and scoring questions.
The answers to such questions will minister to judges in understanding the pace of your company and whether the brand must be awarded on the basis of facts mentioned by them or not. At the end, judges are offered a rating system where they are asked to judge the entrants.
And accordingly, they will judge the brand image and announce the award winners.
What do judges expect from the companies?
If you are a representative of a corporate firm, you must be aware of the benefits of winning corporate awards already. When you write an award-winning entry, there are some expectations of judges as they are looking for such names who can exceed their imagination and success statistics in the long run.
When judges are going through the answers, they generally rate each answer except the background questions as they generally talk about facts. The rating system generally includes the following rating tags:
- Very Good
- Exceeds Expectations
So basically, your aim is to impress the judges in a way that they must tag ‘exceeds expectations’ every time. Judges are also given the privilege to add comments for the representative of the corporate. Such comments can really help the corporate to improve their benchmarks and conclude the best out of it.
Many corporate generally wonder whether there is just a single judge analyzing their award-winning entry. Well, honestly NO! The final score on the entry is based on the average rating where several judges are asked for their rating and the decision is made anonymously.
And it is highly unlikely that you might know the judges already because they might be sitting in a different region and judging the ratings on the basis of your answers. These judges are randomly assigned and many of them are actually rating the same entrant more than once.
And thus, the rating procedure is quite strict and accurately performed. Because at the end, the best corporate must win!
