One of our most popular blog pieces ever has been on the power of awards - if you are in any doubt, or need help getting buy in, this piece will give you some helpful tips: The Power of Awards... (commspromise.co.uk).
In a recent Law Society Gazette article which you can read here How to: Win an award | Feature | Law Gazette, Director of Commspromise, Karen Levin, was quoted making the following key point on the power of awards, which is particularly pertinent with the entry fee:
‘I would always advise clients to think really hard about which categories to enter. Don’t enter an award for the sake of it. Have a good story to put forward. Once you’ve identified the most relevant deals, you need to be able to say why that deal is significant. If you can’t do that in a 150-word elevator pitch it’s probably not worth putting forward.’
