How much time will I have to spend to enter awards?

This depends upon the nature of your project, but we will save you a significant amount of time so that you can focus on your key business function. We recognise that entering awards can be a daunting and complex process, which is why we have developed our products and services to make the whole experience as straightforward and easy to understand as possible.

All we ask is that we receive at least 4 weeks notice when you instruct us to work on an award entry, so we have ample time to research, plan and write the highest quality entry. This will give you the best chance of success.

How many types of awards are there?

There are literally thousands of different awards and categories available – all with a different emphasis. There are specific industry awards, cross-sector business awards, and personal awards for entrepreneurs and leaders – these can either be local, regional, national, or international in terms of their reach and focus.

We have an ever-growing database featuring the best awards in the world, which ensures you have access to the exact award(s) that are best for your needs. Whether you are a new entrepreneur, a large established corporate or anything in between, there are awards out there to suit your personal circumstances.

Which award disciplines are available?

While some awards concentrate on pure business growth and financial performance, the great majority focus on a particular sector or business function, such as IT & Technology, Marketing & PR, Customer Service or Learning & Development.

Each set of awards then features several categories (anything from around 10-50) that are relevant to achieving success in a specific domain. For example, the categories include: ‘Diversity and Inclusion in the Use of Digital’, ‘Customer Experience for SMEs’ or ‘Food & Drink Entrepreneur of the Year’.

What are ‘premium awards’?

There are certain awards such as The King’s Awards for Enterprise and The King’s Honours (MBE, OBE etc.) which command the very highest recognition and praise.

How will I know which awards I should enter?

It’s a real minefield knowing which ones are best for you. That’s why, at the outset, we will analyse and assess your business, research all the awards and categories you could enter, then compile a detailed awards strategy to ensure that we choose the awards that will support your business goals.

Will you tell me if I can / can’t win certain awards?

Of course. We are always transparent and honest with you – after all, ‘Clarity’ is one of our core business values.

There is no point pursuing a particular award if it doesn’t suit your company’s objectives and achievements, and we will steer you towards the best fit for your personal and business goals.
