The 2018 UK Housing Awards: why enter, what to enter and how to make your work shine

27 September 2017, webinar

About the event

Time: 11.00am-12.00pm

Speakers: Emma Maier, editor, Inside Housing and Steve Hayes, communications manager, Chartered Institute of Housing

Chair: Debbie Larner, head of practice, Chartered Institute of Housing

Benefits of attending

The UK Housing Awards, run by CIH and Inside Housing, are the biggest and best in the housing sector - winning is a mark of quality and opens up a range of opportunities to showcase your work as the very best the housing sector has to offer. But with stiff competition, knowing which work you should enter and making sure your award submission does it justice is extremely challenging. 

As nominations for the 2018 UK Housing Awards open, Steve Hayes, CIH’s communications manager and Emma Maier, the editor of Inside Housing, join CIH’s head of practice Debbie Larner as they offer unique insight and explore:

• What makes a great award winning project or piece of work
• What questions you should ask when considering whether to enter
• How to put together a killer award submission
• How to impress the judging panel
• The benefits of entering the Inside Housing Awards
• How to maximise being shortlisted for, or winning, an award
And much, much more.

This informal webinar will be useful to anyone looking to find out more about the awards or who may be considering entering them, anyone involved in the process of choosing which projects to enter and anyone involved in putting award submissions together or appearing before a panel of judges.
