The Partner Awards are a great opportunity to reflect and celebrate all of the successes and achievements within your organisation. Use our top tips for an award-winning application.
CMI CEO Ann Francke speaks from a podium at the CMI President's Dinner.

With four awards to enter, including new categories announced for 2022, there’s no better time to start your application. Our top tips will help you create an award-winning entry. Don’t just take our word for it, hear first hand from our 2022 judges on what they will be looking for in an application.

1. Have a clear picture

Be sure to pick the right category and ask yourself: is the project too big? And is it too soon to enter it? If the outcome of your project isn’t clear yet, better to leave it a year.

2. Give it time

Start early and give yourself time. A good entry usually takes at least a week. Make sure your entry is saved as a word document locally so you can keep adding, reflecting and shaping your answers before submitting it. If you’ve given yourself enough time you can use your internal PR and marketing experts to make sure it looks and sounds great.
