The content of the written nomination is very important for proceeding to the next stage of the judging process.
Candidates in all categories are asked to provide information about themselves and/or their organisation. Nominators can assist candidates prepare the information but the nomination should be from the candidate. This means that nominations should be written by using 'I' or 'we', not 'he', 'she' or 'they'.
Cover all the assessment criteria and all the points under each criterion. Treat all the assessment criteria seriously because they are all important.
Vague generalisations should be avoided. General statements such as 'I am a good team member', 'I have an understanding of industry trends' or 'training is fundamental to the success of our business' must be supported with clear evidence and practical examples.
Keep your writing clear and simple. Dot points are acceptable.
Think of the nomination as an application for a job or a contract - emphasise what makes you or your organisation stand head and shoulders above all the other applicants.
Remember incomplete nominations will not be considered.
