Top tips for entering the East Midlands Bricks Awards 2022

With the 2022 East Midlands Bricks Awards picking up pace, nominations are now flowing in.

Celebrating the outstanding work of those shaping the landscape of our region, this year’s highly-anticipated awards ceremony will take place on Thursday 15 September, at the Trent Bridge Cricket Ground in the Derek Randall Suite, featuring John Forkin MBE DL, Managing Director at award-winning investment promotion agency Marketing Derby, as keynote speaker. Tickets can be booked here.

Here are 5 top tips for a successful entry:

  1. Make your nomination compelling.
  2. Less is more – as often judges have to read a large number of nomination forms, no one wants to read “waffle” or an excessive use of jargon in an award entry, so be concise and specific with what you write.
  3. Use facts, statistics and key examples that support why a project, person or business should win an award, as they will make any statement you make much stronger.
  4. Make sure to read the criteria carefully to be sure that your nomination does in fact fit what is being looked for. Why not reflect on the projects that won last year to get an idea of whether your nomination reflects a certain category’s requirements.
  5. Finally, proofread your nomination and submit it in plenty of time!

If you haven’t submitted your nominations yet, now is the prime time – showcase your business, team and projects. Nominations forms can be found here. Alternatively, click on an individual link below to go straight to a specific category’s nomination form.
