This is a friendly reminder that the Landscape Excellence Awards for 2021 are now open for submissions.

Do you want to know how to write award submissions that will stand out and help you win? Here are a few pointers to help you get started.

  1. Give yourself enough time.

Take your time to gather all of the information you’ll need for your entry, such as a signed copy of your contract or tender, a design brief, a scope of the project, plans, maintenance schedule, and images.

  1. Stay on topic.

It can be difficult to keep on track and avoid making assertions that are unclear. Make sure that your expressions are succinct and concise.

  1. Get your staff and co-workers involved.

The willingness to work as part of a team is one of the most critical requirements for many businesses. A wonderful way to show this quality is to write an entry.

  1. Read your submission aloud.

Reread and double-check how your submission comes across to the judges. Make it flawless.

  1. Tell a great story.

Tell the story. A story has natural momentum to it. Use a good hook as your awards entry effective opener. Judges are human beings who inherently love stories, so they want to be a part of something great and valuable. Help them enter your story and help you keep telling it.

  1. Answer every question.

Even though you believe the entry form has a lot of questions, be sure to answer them all because your award chances may be impacted if you don’t.

  1. Include photos where asked.

Include the appropriate photos where requested, such as close-ups of joints, gaps, and paving; they do not need to be professionally taken.

  1. Stick to the word limit.

Consider 50 words as the lower boundary, with the word limit as the upper boundary. Basically, try to get to somewhere between 450–500 words for a 500-word-limit story.

  1. Read, proofread, and repeat.

Test your story out in front of an audience to see how it would sound. The primary aim is to keep it brief, succinct, and easy to understand.
