Six tips for entering the Americas Awards
1. Do check your entry meets the criteria
Be specific and give examples, facts and numbers to validate that your entry fits the criteria. Without them, your entry won’t make the judges’ cut.
2. Do stick to the word limit
No-one wants to wade through an overblown entry full of frothy platitudes on why your entry is the bestest ever. Stick to the word limit. Always.
3. Do provide supplemental information
Our judges do a surprising amount of research into the shortlisted entries. Make their job easy by including links to online videos, webinars or articles that support your entry. Don’t get silly though. Tweets of your favourite cat gif will not go down well.
4. Do enter more than one category
There is no limit to the number of categories you can enter. A single project, deal or technology solution could work for a number of categories.
5. Do set free your inner journalist
Cub reporters at media school have the ‘What, Where, When, and How’ drummed into them from day one. What is the entry about? Where did it take place? When did it happen? How did it come about? You can add one more: Why is it significant to the Americas shipping industry?
6. Do hit the deadline
Late entries get binned. No-one wants that.
