Entry tips

How to write an entry worthy of a golden butterfly:

Proof Read

  • Whilst it might sound obvious, too many entries let themselves down through silly errors
  • Check all organisations’ names are spelt correctly - typos will instantly establish the wrong impression
  • Ensure links/videos have no expiry date and the login details if necessary, have been supplied
  • Do not submit entries with other organisations’ awards logos on them

Stick to the objective

  • The most successful entries relate their results back to their original objectives
  • Although statistics can be impressive, there is no point in trying to force them into the submission if they are not relevant to the brief or the category
  • Clear objectives ensure the judges can appropriately assess the results 

Use convincing but informative language

  • By utilising the correct language you have the ability to engage, excite and persuade the judges that your work above all other competitors deserves a golden butterfly. Be original.

  • However, avoid using unnecessary jargon to make your entry sound exciting as it can make the project seem vague and unclear

Provide accurate and clear information

  • Ensure all cross-referenced information matches up, as our expert panel of judges will check this. For example, in the past, we have seen examples of visual evidence which is contradictory to the entry statement
  • It is preferable to provide actual figures rather than percentages. If you do use percentages however, make sure you provide the judges with a clear context of the audience/sector. This will allow the judges to understand and make better sense of your entry.
  • Please stick rigidly to the word count. This is to ensure you do not 'waffle' and to ensure you succinctly deliver your message. Our judges will have a large number of entries to read and evaluate. 

Know what and when you are entering

  • If you are entering one project into multiple categories please ensure it is tailored to fit each category
  • If you are submitting a long-term project please be clear about which stage of the project you are entering. The project's strategy has to be developed, launched and carried out between July 2017 and January 2019.
