Simpler Entry Process for MKBAA 2017

Mon 26 Sep 2016 - posted by Louisa Breakell

As organisers of the Milton Keynes Business Achievement Awards, presented by the Milton Keynes Business Leaders Partnership (MKBLP), Interdirect have played a significant role in the evolvement of the awards since their debut in 2014.  

MKBAA has gone from strength to strength since its first year, recognising more of the city’s principle industries and welcoming more businesses from each sector. The awards now receive entries across 12 categories, spanning community impact, innovation and technology, hospitality and many more, reflecting the diversity of Milton Keynes businesses.

A crucial part of expanding MKBAA has been encouraging entries from more and more local businesses year on year through feedback from previous entrants. As the first step in entering the awards, a smooth entry process is a crucial: it must be both easy and quick, but informative enough for judges to ensure the right businesses find themselves on the stage.

For the 2017 awards, this process has been further streamlined to make entering as easy as possible for businesses whilst obtaining the information judges need. To enter for the 2017 awards, businesses need only to answer four questions with a maximum of 700 words for all four. In previous years, entrants would need to provide financial details, case studies and supporting evidence, amounting to a lengthy word count.
In addition, entrants no longer need to submit their final application – provided work is saved every time the application is edited, entries will be automatically reviewed when the application period closes.

Upon becoming nominees, entrants will then have to elaborate on their original answers so that judges can select finalists for each category.

Business looking to enter the awards can find instructions and tips for the best entry on the MKBAA website, as well as information on previous winners.
