Top tips for successful Award entries 

  • You can enter as many award categories as you wish and doing so increases your chance of being shortlisted or winning
  • Think carefully about your entry or nomination clearly stating why your team should be considered
  • Include evidence and supporting information to back up your entry
  • Feel free to send attachments to support your entry to awards@land-data.org.uk
  • “Yes” or “No” answers tend to score poorly and should be used sparingly - the more detail you give us the more the judges have to work on. Remember that some answers are weighted.
  • Don’t hold back in reaching out to your direct customers and asking them to nominate you for the Customer Satisfaction Award.  If you are proud of your service ask them to nominate you! Experience tells us that the LAs who provide excellent service and have proactively asked for nominations in the past have frequently made the shortlist. We've drafted some copy which you could email to customers with the link for nominations, you can see it here.
  • 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.
