Raquel Meikle, the awards manager, says, "I am always in awe of the energy and passion around the Global Media Awards. I look forward to seeing this year's submissions."

The tips are the following:

Tip 1:
Use the CORE formula — as these are the primary criteria for the judges:
  • Creativity
  • Originality
  • Results, and
  • Enthusiasm. 

Tip 2:
Keep it simple. Consider consolidating your entry into a single PDF.

Tip 3:
Don't just tell … show! Use audio / visual aids, as photos, videos and graphics help convey the spirit of your entry. 

Tip 4:
Look for recent work. The jury is interested in previously launched work that served communities and readers.
