Have you thought about entering your business for an award? From a public relations point of view, it’s a great idea. You may win, and get some excellent PR mileage out of it. Even if you don’t win, you may be shortlisted, and you can still let people know.

To give yourself the best chance, you need to work hard on your award entry. We have helped numerous clients with their entries, picking just the right words to convey what they do, and why they deserve to win. And we do this without waffle or using too much spin, which judges can see right through.

We were particularly delighted when our homecare client, DoCare, entered two Gloucestershire business awards and won them both. They deserved to win, and we like to think our words gave them a helping hand.

Since winning those awards, their director Steve Mills has been named Stroud businessman of year (we wrote the award entry) and he and co-director Una Mills have won a national Great British Care Award (and we wrote the entry for that too).

Getting the tone right for award entries, as well as meeting potentially tight word counts and deadlines, is something we excel at.
