Real talk: Why award wins aren't guaranteed and what my awards copywriting results really look like.


Hello, beautiful souls!

It's your go-to Awards Hype-Woman, Mel Wrote It, bringing you the latest buzz in business accolades! 🎉

Let's dive straight in with a splash of honesty.

Rumours often swirl post-award ceremonies, especially when whispers of behind-the-scenes help surface. The question lingers – does enlisting a seasoned award writer guarantee a win every time?

I'm here to dispel that illusion.

Such myths only brew unrealistic expectations, both for you, the ambitious award contender, and for me, your dedicated Awards Copywriter, to deliver a flawless victory streak.

While I'd revel in seeing you triumph always, it's simply not a promise I can make.

There's no secret formula where an Awards Copywriter equals a guaranteed win. It's akin to the misconception that hiring a top-notch resume writer ensures a job offer from every interview.

Yet, here's the deal.

Partnering with an experienced pro like myself, who has crafted over 140 award entries since 2021, primes you to leave a lasting impression on the judges – much like how a polished CV can make you stand out to potential employers.

Entrusting your award submissions to a specialist isn't about manipulating outcomes – that's not how I roll. It's about time efficiency and gaining a competitive edge, all above board and ethical.

And remember, legitimate wins can't be bought – so steer clear of those "pay-to-win" traps (more on that in a future post!).
