Thank you to all that attended our July professional development event, “Write to Win: Mastering the Art of Awards Submission Writing.” We hope you enjoyed some of the key takeaways to help take your awards entries to the next level. A special thanks to IABC Southern Region, IABC Atlanta, Kansas City IABC, and IABC South Carolina for their support in making this event happen!
In this hour-long workshop, we learned how to avoid common pitfalls and ways to make your entries stand out in front of judges, including:
- Identifying common mistakes and writing problems
- Understanding judges and what they are looking for
- Proactive planning to avoid late deadlines
- Crafting entries that tell a story and demonstrate results
