1) Avoid superficial statements and descriptions 2) Don’t do half hearted last minute entries. Spend
enough quality time to review the entry 3) Don’t focus on quantity. But on quality 4) Don’t be only too technical in the technical categories - bring in an element of what does it mean to the industry 5) Last but not the least; don’t be disappointed if your work is not awarded. Keep faith in the robust award system instituted by OAA to do away with biases. Keep the passion up to do better work for the next season.
