OAA Judge Tips: Ian Phillips

November 2018

Ian Phillips has been heading up the OAA Committee for the past 8 years and in that time, has reviewed dozens of applications across several categories. 

Here he shares his advice on writing a winning entry for the Offshore Achievement Awards. 

“Make your points clearly – remember that not all the judges will be familiar with your specialism. 
“Avoid marketing waffle and “buzz-word-bingo” – judges don’t respond well to an over-the-top submission written by the marketing department.
“Answer the question. Cutting and pasting from another application – or worse from the sales brochure – means you don’t answer the question asked and get marked down.”
