How can I create a winning submission?
Imagine introducing your business as the Best Developer in Asia, or having your diligent efforts officially recognised—what a colossal achievement that would be.
But how can you ensure that your submission is in the bag?
There’s no paying your way into the winning rounds.
An excellent application should contain an extensive compilation of elements that accurately represent your project, from succinct descriptions to detailed photography.
Here are a few tips to adhere to when contriving a flawless Property Award submission:
Follow the criteria
Everyone knows that sticking closely to what the judges are looking for is the surest way of upping your winning chances.
It might sound straightforward, but many applicants neglect this cardinal rule.
You shouldn’t drone on and on about unrelated facts about your company; instead, you want to pay special attention to each respective category and how your descriptions fit with the criteria as clearly and precisely as possible.
That’s what the judges will be assessing, after all.
Not your long list of testimonials, however impressive they may be.
Make it attention-worthy
In the case of your Property Award submission, dressing to impress applies. Submissions that harbour a certain flair always catch attention.
Stand out from the massive heap of competitors by incorporating videos or well-designed supporting imagery.
You can even form a central theme if you’re feeling extra fancy, and make sure that your choice of fonts, colours and graphics are consistent.
Having attention to detail really makes a difference in making your submission appear more elegant and professional.
So you’ve created the perfect Property Award submission, equipped with just the right amount of visuals and narration; but what’s that?
A spelling mistake?
You might as well toss in the towel.
Don’t let a minor detail such as a grammatical error ruin your thoroughly-crafted submission.
Always remember to proofread or get a third party to review it before you send it off to oblivion.
Once you’ve ensured that the tone and presentation are impeccable, only then should your cursor come close to the ‘send’ button.
Your powerful claims are gratuitous if they’re not substantiated by hard facts.
Data and figures are your best friends when it comes to measuring success and backing up your work.
By including this information, the judges can easily see the scale of your accomplishments.
You may even showcase any increase in reach, exposure and followers, as well as numerical data expressing drastic changes in your online profile.
There’s no paying to win, but there’s no arguing against numbers either.
Submit in more than one category
Go big or go home.
Don’t submit in one category and sit back hoping for the best.
The more categories you apply for, the larger your chances will be to get recognised for an award.
As long as your projects qualify, submit them!
Craft an eye-catching description
Obviously, a remarkably written and edited description does a lot to help your verdict.
If you’re an architect or manufacturer, try using emotive words that depict how your building makes its occupants feel, for example.
You want your proposal to leave a lasting impact on the jurors.
Invest in professional photography
A winning submission wouldn’t be adorned with weak images that don’t do the illustrated projects justice.
Consider engaging the services of a professional photographer, or outsource for visual design expertise to illuminate your projects in their best light.
With these beneficial tips in mind, victory, recognition, and growth will all be within your reach.
