  • Helpful Hints in Making a Nomination

    The following are a range of helpful hints to make your nomination submission as easy as possible for the judges to evaluate.

    • Take time to go through all the pages of the awards section of the Gulf Traffic website. It has all the details to help you make a good submission
    • Create a submission team and do not leave the preparation to a junior member of the team
    • Your application will be scored against the judging criteria
    • Make sure that you have responded to the criteria outlined for each category
    • Prepare each section in bullet point form first then expand each point. That way you ensure you cover all points in the space allowed
    • Brainstorm the criteria with others
    • Highlight each question at the beginning of each response
    • Set out your application under the criteria headings
    • Provide supporting materials and small appendices only
    • Be particular with words - punctuate, proof-read, spell out acronyms
    • Make time to prepare and check your submission
    • Arrange an external review, along the way and on completion

    What the Judges Seek

    • Easy to read, concise and factual - with vital information contained in the core of the submission and not in the supporting documentation
    • Judges are seeking points of distinction that make the nomination stand out from the rest – the gems, the examples of lateral thinking, excellence and achievements
    • Clear and specific responses to the criteria
    • Evidence to back your claims
    • A focus on quality not quantity

    Common Mistakes

    • Failing to structure the application against the judging criteria
    • Failing to address the judging criteria in the application
    • Assuming judges know your business
    • Not involving management – and others
    • Writing more than the allocated allowance
    • Placing core information into the appendix
    • Failure to really read and interpret the criteria
    • Relying on a belief 'we're good', and not substantiating this by a lack of supporting materials
    • Believing that submissions can be sent after the deadline
  • Judging Panel and Judging process
