7 tips for successful entry

We have prepared some tips and guidelines that you might find useful when preparing your potential winning entry for SPORTO Awards. Always remember, that in order to be the best, you must work hard. As your project or campaign took a lot of time and effort, so will this entry. Well, not AS much. But do not be afraid. You can do it!

1. Perfection is a skill.
To get well-deserved attention and acknowledgment for your project among the juries and other competitors, make sure your application is excellent and flawless. Make sure you read the entry criteria and entry rules before you start to complete the application.

2. Be on time.
Make sure you have enough time to both consider and develop your entry. Don’t wait until the last week (or even minutes) before the deadline. Check out the deadlines and get the dates in your diaries now.

3. Keep it simple.
Your application should be composed shortly, briefly and clearly, including all required components, while having in mind that juries come from a variety of Europian countries and might not have seen your project. This is your unique opportunity to present yourself and your project as you wanted to be seen. But still, make sure you meet all criteria, required in the entry form. Clearly define your target audiences, visions, and aims, described in a specific and concrete way, easy to understand.

4. Be smart.
Make sure that in your application is clearly shown that your aims were SMART (specific, measurable, attainable/achievable, realistic, timeline).

5. Be meaningful specific.
Statistical and numerical data are a milestone of the application form. Present actual results with numbers and achieved aims as well as the described process of accomplishing it. Don’t just fill your application with the contents of existing sales and marketing materials. Emphasise the benefits.

6. Be yourself.
Show your uniqueness and creativity presented in the project also in your application. Always rethink if the entry represents your project properly.

7. Don’t keep it in.
Don’t be afraid to ask for help. If someone else in your company, sports club or agency has had the experience in submitting a highly commented entry before, ask your peers for guidance. And in the end, if you need any help, do not hesitate to contact us by sending an email to awards@sporto.si.
