Top tips for submitting a winning entry
Whether you’re a multinational demonstrating innovation in its existing business, an early-stage organization at the vanguard of this exciting movement, a public sector body that is disrupting business as usual, or using technologies to enable the circular economy, the following tips will help you create a compelling entry.
Consider the themesThis year’s key themes are leadership, innovation and value creation. Consider how these tie in with your journey and link them together to create an overall picture of what your particular organization or programme is achieving. Remember, if some of your answers to the individual questions in the entry form are stronger or weaker than others, having a compelling story will help bring it all together.
Be conciseWe want to hear your story, but remember to use your word count wisely. Set the scene and tell the judges why your circular initiative innovative and will deliver lasting value, providing qualitative and quantitative data where appropriate to sufficiently address the question. There’s a soft limit of 150 words per question and a tracker on the entry form to help you stay within the word limit.
Have you thought about a video?If you really want to bring your entry to life, consider creating a short video or utilizing an existing video that’s relevant. It’s an easy, accessible way for the judges to learn about what you’ve done – and if you become a finalist, you’ll be encouraged to create one anyway – so why not start thinking about it now?
