Most powerful insight from traditional methods of data analysis For work that demonstrates best practice using tried and tested methodologies. There’s no need to be pushing the technological envelope here; however entries that show that a project employed traditional approaches to analysis in an unexpected way may be at an advantage – look for that X-factor! Great results will obviously count in your favour.

Most powerful insight using innovative methods of data analysis Entries in this category will demonstrate real innovation in the analysis techniques employed. It could be a new idea built from the ground up, or a valuable development of an existing approach. Ideally submissions in this category should champion an approach or technique that has not previously been widely used or developed.

Best use of data and analysis in digital fundraising Entries will showcase the best insight developed specifically for projects generating insights through online, SMS and email. Appropriate media would include web analytics, email marketing, social media, e-commerce and mobile.

Most powerful insight through research Entries should demonstrate outstanding use of market and/or supporter intelligence derived from research, in the development of a fundraising strategy or in informing successful fundraising execution.

Most powerful example of insight sharing Although success is often about great ideas, it’s also closely linked to what we do with them. This category recognises instances in which an insight has gathered significant value by being communicated more widely, either within or outside the originating organisation. How was buy-in sought, what was it hoped to achieve by this and what results ensued?

Most powerful use of insight by a small to medium income charity This category is self-explanatory. This category is self-explanatory. The entering fundraising organisation must have a small to medium fundraising turnover and a shoe string budget – entries will show how the featured insight offered particular value and ROI.

Most powerful insight from a long-term strategic project Sometimes a successful fundraising analysis project can span several years. This category is designed to recognise projects that have gone through considerable development and perhaps multiple iterations. It may be the case that the project has instigated spin-offs which themselves have become valuable. The intention is to encourage and celebrate long-term strategic thinking and analysis.

Team of the year This award is for a team of highly motivated and professional individuals who have worked well in strong collaboration to deliver a highly regarded insight and analytics programme in their organisation.

Supplier of the year A marketing service provider or agency that helps the charity achieve exceptional results, time after time; known for adding value and display a combination of consistently delivering on their service promise whilst pioneering solutions that are creative and cost-effective.

Rising star A special award for an outstanding individual in the early stages of their career. This person could be highly professional, an inspiration to others, committed to getting things done, able to effectively communicate complex analysis, willing to go that extra mile, or simply being a fantastic support or team player.

Outstanding contribution special award A special award to recognise a person believed to stand above all others in their lifetime dedication to applying and advancing the application of insight and analytics in the fundraising sector.
