With the entry deadline for the Awards fast approaching, here are some tips to help you write a winning entry.

ACE’s Consultancy and Engineering Awards is the country’s foremost celebration of industry excellence, with construction firms small and large from the built environment celebrating their people and projects. 

Here are some insider tips to help you get your entry underway. 

Preparation is key

Read the entry form carefully, consider which part of your business or development story will match the awards criteria and start brainstorming ideas for your entry. As it’s your specialist subject, you’ll find that you have a wealth of information to share, so it’s just an editing job.

Easy does it

Make sure the entry is concise, clear and easy to understand. Consider using bullet points and short sentences and always use plain English (no jargon or unexplained acronyms). The judges will read many entries, so get to the point but don’t miss important information.

Build a compelling case

Back up your claims with statistical and testimonial evidence and case study examples.

Boost your entry

Garner support and input for your entry from peers and senior managers. They can provide you with useful information and feedback. Sharing positive stories boosts morale and helps people feel included. They will be happy to be part of the process and help you create the best possible entry.

Check your answer meets the criteria

Round up your entry at the end to show that your story addresses and exceeds the expectations of the award criteria.


Awards are a time to recognise, game-changing projects, inspirational businesses and all the great people making it happen. Before you know it, it will be January and time to dust off your party shoes. Prepare for a fun night at the Awards Gala Dinner – we look forward to seeing you there.
