What makes a winning entry?
The judging panel will need as detailed information as possible within the application guidelines. The judging panel recognise that the WSA Membership is diverse and resources differ greatly from one organisation to another. However, video entries bringing projects to life will be advantageous.
Work should have the potential to create significant impact for the sector. This impact will demonstrate a combination of positive outcomes. Impact might be achieved by the growth of the organisation applying, or by the spread of their ideas to its members or other organisations. Applicants should also show good governance and management.
