FIA's Awards #TopTips for Success

Tip #1: Check, check and recheck – get fresh eyes to proof your submission 

Tip #2: Judges score against criteria. Dazzle with creativity AND tick the boxes

Tip #3: Say what you mean – use direct language to deliver your message clearly 

Tip #4: It is not about how much the campaign raised but showing the effectiveness of the campaign

Tip #5: Show that you did something different and innovative and not just the same campaign year after year 

Tip #6: Show strategic thinking: why was the campaign done that way (not just because it’s the same every year)

Tip #7: Does your executive summary address how the fundraising activity fits into the organisation’s overall fundraising strategy?

Tip #8: Tell your story. Your entry includes a short, informal video. This is your opportunity to share the passion, inspiration and reason why you or your entry should win.
