Top tips for successful Award entries 

  • You can enter (or be nominated ) for more than one award category and doing so increases your chances of winning
  • Think carefully about your entry or nomination clearly stating why your team or a person should be considered
  • Include evidence and supporting information to back up your claims
  • Feel free to send attachments to support your entry to awards@land-data.org.uk
  • “Yes” or “No” answers should be used sparingly, as the more detail you give us the more the judges have to work on. Remember that some answers are weighted, “Yes” and “No” answers tend to score poorly.
  • Don’t be shy in reaching out to your direct customers and asking them to nominate you for the Customer Satisfaction Award. Experience tells us that the LAs who provide excellent service and have proactively asked for nominations in the past have frequently made the shortlist.
  • Keep your MyNLIS data up to date. We use imperical data to validate turnaround times and volume splits and while the NLIS Hub data is helpful, data submitted by MyNLIS gives a much wider picture.
