Entries for the unquote” awards are due by 4pm on Friday. If you have yet to complete your submission, here is some last-minute guidance.
To enter the awards, visit our dedicated site here. Due to a high volume of submissions coming close to the original 12 July deadline, the cut-off was pushed back: entries must be completed no later than 4pm on Friday 14 July 2017. This will not be extended further.
The shortlist will be determined by our judging panel and will be announced at the beginning of September. The winners will be chosen by a combination of the panel's input and a readership vote.
As our judging panel brings together leading experts from across the industry (to view the panel, click here), different judges will look for different things. You stand a much-improved chance of winning the award, however, if you focus on how you have innovated and improved the service you provide clients over the 12 months to 30 June 2017. Do not just give numbers – explain them. And when describing new products or innovations, make it applicable to a particular deal to really help judges understand their utility.
One of the big bugbears for judges is that, while a particular firm may have launched an amazing service or product for clients two years ago, or is the biggest firm in a particular area, the submission does not adequately demonstrate the changes and improvements it has made over the period of assessment (1 July 2016 to 30 June 2017).
The awards will be held in London on 3 October. To book a table for the night, please contact Justin Raveenthiran at firstname.lastname@example.org or 0203 741 1390.
We look forward to welcoming you to our awards in October.
