Benefits of Entering Awards

​​​Awards are a great way to get yourself, your business or your idea noticed. Now, what can be bad about that? People can sometimes be dubious of entering awards because they may not feel confident in their ideas, they may think “oh I’ll never win”, or that there is too much competition. But really, you never know until you try!
