Are you sitting on the fence about entering awards? Lack of time… low priority… it’s easy to file competitions under ‘nice but not necessary’, however, have you considered the true impact of taking part?
For more than two decades of Most Wanted and 12 years of the It List, Creative HEAD’s award-winners have gone on to achieve great things – like opening second businesses, increasing clientele, signing with global agencies, representing leading brands, picking up personal promotions and much more. But aside from the tangible results winning can reap, there is also a marked emotional benefit. Boosting self-confidence, reflecting on obstacles overcome, affirmation of achievements – all this is vital and valuable for personal and career-orientated progression.
