Catch up on our Tourism Awards Masterclass

Awards for Excellent

Fancy being at the VisitEngland Tourism Awards 2023? Well in that case you need to get your application to the Destination Lincolnshire Tourism Excellence Awards filled in asap. Before submissions close on July 29th in fact. But don't worry - we've got just the help at hand to make sure the process is as quick and painless as possible.

If you missed our online masterclass with Nell Barrington - a tourism awards veteran, who has helped hundreds of businesses write winning applications over the last 15 years – including national VisitEngland winners - you can now watch it online. Fill your application in in real-time with Nell, or make notes and go through the application process at your own speed.

Full of insights, tips and tricks and useful links, and helpful suggestions, this masterclass should help you produce an application that is worthy of the shortlist.

Laura Freer, Head of Marketing at Destination Lincolnshire said: “This is a golden opportunity, after years of hard work and heartache, to get your business and team recognised and rewarded. A well written application is key to achieving a coveted place on this year’s shortlist, and I’d encourage all tourism and visitor economy businesses who are thinking of entering – whether they are seasoned at writing award applications or not – to join us for this exclusive masterclass.

“Nell Barrington has worked with us and VisitEngland on the founding application processes of these awards, and she is perfectly placed to assist in co-creating applications that you can be proud of. This is a great opportunity for business development too – whether you are shortlisted for an award or not – discovering how to effectively apply for awards and talk up your business adds another string to your bow.

“This year we’ve made our masterclass available to partners and also to those who we are yet to work with for free - so be sure to catch up with it. Call it an added bonus, after two years away from the awards circuit. Just think, by investing one hour in this class you will find out what makes an award winning entry, pick up lots of practical advice, hints and tips and have time to ask your questions."

The awards masterclass is focussed on the application process, and it will spell out what the judges are looking for. You’ll learn how to make your application stand out from the local competition, helping your chances of going through to the national VisitEngland Awards in 2023.

So, why not watch along? Other than the fact that you'll have exclusive access to award application professionals, if you have never entered the tourism awards before, are unsure about how to apply via the online process or are set on entering but have no idea how to make your application stand-out - this masterclass is for you. Find out more about the Destination Lincolnshire Tourism Awards and categories, be sure to get your applications in before the closing date on 29 July 2022.
