Award entry is an integral part of many businesses’ growth strategy plans but with industry competition at a high, entering awards doesn’t guarantee a win.

As peculiar as it might sound, entering awards isn’t always about taking home a trophy. There are, in fact, several reasons to enter awards, all of which will benefit your campaigns, strategies, and teams even if you don’t make it to the stage – this time!

Boost your brand and gain recognition

Sure, winning an award can give your brand a significant boost. But did you know that simply entering an award can also raise your profile? By promoting your award entry on social media, blogs, and your website, you can increase the visibility and credibility of your brand. So, even if you don’t take home the trophy, you’re still making waves in your industry.

Attract new clients, new talent, and new partnerships

Entering awards is a fantastic way to show clients and potential partners just how passionate and dedicated you are to your work. It’s a chance to highlight your commitment to excellence and your willingness to go the extra mile. Plus, by recognizing your team’s hard work through award entries, you’re boosting morale and showing appreciation for their efforts.

Feedback from judges for external insight into your work

The entry process provides organisations with clarity on initial campaign objectives in relation to the results and gives an opportunity to reflect on the journey of the project, discover a new perspective, and identify areas for improvement.

The Don’t Panic Awards entry form is the perfect framework for reviewing the overall project and gaining clarity for future work, as well as an opportunity to judge projects. Shortlisted entrants into the Don’t Panic awards receive feedback from judges on whether their entries take home a trophy or not.

Networking is a crucial part of business growth, and awards ceremonies are perfect opportunities to connect with industry leaders and like-minded professionals. By attending a Don’t Panic Awards, you’ll have the chance to mingle with companies from the UK, Europe, the US and beyond. It’s a fantastic way to learn from others, share ideas, and even scope out the competition in a friendly and collaborative environment.
