 Useful tips

Comments and tips from Abbie Jeffs, 2018 and 2019 Core Values Judge, from the IAP2 Australasia Core Values Awards Breakfast, Sydney, 31 October 2019.


  • Entries which demonstrate a robust approach to making sense of the data and applying insights to the engagement process attract marks.
  • Those entries that pull multiple elements together tend to float to the top.
  • Well-constructed and tight submissions which are structured against the criteria score well.
  • Proofreading and editing is vital for judges to make sense of your entry, and find the “nuggets of gold” in your entry.
  • The benchmark is high, and entries that demonstrate alignment above and beyond the IAP2 Core Values score well.
