Architecture is much more than a building on a plot of land. It reaches beyond the necessities of shelter to strive to become a work of art and a reflection of our zeitgeist. Recognition of good work helps evolve the industry and foster credibility for new players. It can also help inspire future generations to find their own voice and learn from the giants who came before them.
Credibility is critical for every business endeavour. But it’s even more fundamental in an awards, grants or submission program where evaluating content is a central focus and where plagiarism is a threat to program credibility.
And, unfortunately, it’s easier than ever for someone to steal content that is not theirs.
Grab your popcorn, clear your calendars! Awards Season is here and it’s time for some always entertaining red carpet fanfare. But, if you’re an awards event planner, it’s also the perfect time to reassess what makes an awards ceremony successful and what makes it a Twitter target for something gone wrong.
Life is busy, we know. With what feels like a million tasks to do every day and constant reminders from our productivity tools, it can be hard to keep up with it all.
But your awards, recognition or grants program shouldn’t feel that way, and Award Force is here to help.
We’ll help you cut down on the noise– all those extra tasks that need to be simplified and streamlined.
According to the World Health Organisation, 15% of the world population, roughly 1 billion people, live with disabilities. This is an incredibly large community of people that are easily excluded if an application does not consider them in their design.
Award Force has been designed for all types of users, and that includes people with disabilities.
This cartoon by @officeguycartoons.com recently floated around the “office” at Award Force (Slack 😊). Since we are a company that develops software to help organisations recognise excellence in their field, the cartoon was both apt and thought-provoking.
Spam traps are a tool used by ISP’s to identify and track spammers. Essentially, they are an unmanned email address that alerts an ISP anytime an email lands in its inbox. If by some chance you send an email to this address, you get flagged as a spammer and you will find it extremely difficult to get any of your email delivered.
On the surface, attachments in Award Force are exactly what you think they are, a means for your entrants + grant-seekers to include additional information or media with their submission.
But scratch a little deeper and you will find attachments in Award Force are not just a paperclip on the side of an input box, they are a fully fledged power tool which gives you, your team and your program participants an exceptional experience, leaving you wondering “why doesn’t everyone handle attachments like that?”.
