Nominations close at midnight on 6 December 2022.
Each category has awarding criteria. Carefully check the criteria to ensure your nomination is eligible and suitable for the category you are nominating in.
Now you have chosen the most suitable award, here are five tips for making your entry shine:
Award panellists will often have dozens of entries to read, so write an exciting intro and make your best points first.
Use bullet points and short paragraphs to structure your entry. This will enable you to stick to the point and to organise the information in an easy-read format, which will help the panellists too.
Back up your facts with evidence and detail. Use statistics where possible, include any research you undertook to measure the impact of a rowing programme or project.
Including feedback, especially from those impacted by the person you are nominating as this can be very persuasive and it could be the difference between two strong entries.
