2020 December Luncheon: What Does It Take to Win an ADDY?
Topic: What Does It Take to Win an ADDY?
Have you ever found yourself saying: “Those judges are idiots. We should’ve won an ADDY."?
Here’s your chance to learn from an experienced awards competition judge about what he looks for when choosing winners, the mistakes entrants make that hurt their chances, and the secrets that can make your entry stand out during the judging process. Ask him anything you want. Make recommendations. Yell at him. Well … maybe don’t yell at him.
If you’ve ever wondered what goes through a judge’s head during the judging process, this is your chance to find out. Who knows? Maybe this will help you win an ADDY.
