  5 tips for entering The GPAs 

1. Keep your entry simple

Use straightforward language and focus on the outstanding elements of your entry that are likely to set it apart from the competition. You want your entry to stand out, so avoid bringing attention to the more mundane, run-of-the-mill aspects, while also avoiding unsubstantiated hyperbole.

2. Create supporting material to showcase your entry

Try and always submit supporting material with your entry. This can be a short video clip, project examples, statistics graphs etc. Ensure the supporting material relates directly to what you’ve written in your entry form. Judges are looking to see examples of what you’ve talked about in your entry form and can only judge your entry on the material you’ve provided.

Note: the 'Hero Image' you provide is what will be used on the website, social media & awards night, so make sure it best showcases your entry


3. What makes your entry special?

Everyone thinks they deserve to win an award, but not everyone can get across why on their entry forms. Award-winning projects, initiatives and teams are the ones demonstrating a best-of-breeds approach to innovation and creativity that genuinely raises the bar on what’s gone before. Explain why your entry is this special, back this up with relevant supporting material, and you’re on your way to being shortlisted.


4. Judges can only judge what's in front of them

Remember to mention everything you think is relevant in your entry as judges can only judge what they have in front of them.


5. Stick to the word counts and remember the eligibility period

It’s an obvious thing to say, but if your entry wasn’t during the eligibility period, it won’t be shortlisted. Likewise, the word count is there for a reason – maximise the opportunity to explain the great points about your entry by fully utilising the space available.

All entries will be up to 600 word - be sure to include:

  • The scope of the project and production requirements
  • How it was delivered, and any particular challenges or obstacles overcome
  • Who was involved and what key organisations worked together to deliver the production(s)
  • The key success of the project/production(s) supported by evidence of success and benefits to the environment and carbon footprint reduction
  • Stand-out contributions from an individual or organisation to the success of the production(s) and filming location(s)
  • Please include details of any social or cultural benefits to the local community, to align with inclusive/sustainable nature of these awards
