Self-nominations are welcomed.
Submissions should ideally come from someone else within the organisation – eg a line manager, colleague, director – or from an industry partner or client. However, we will also accept self-nominations.
Submissions will not be accepted from companies in categories they are sponsoring.
Please remember the awards are about people – individuals or teams – so make sure it’s clear who is the nominee is. We cannot accept submissions for a product or initiative, nor for the whole company. In your entry, please make it clear which individual or team you are entering.
In all categories, submissions must demonstrate how the nominee has gone ‘above and beyond’, so please don’t just describe their day-to-day responsibilities. We are looking for stand-out achievements.
For 2023, all entries must include supporting evidence, such as videos, client, partner or peer testimonials. These will account for 25% of the overall scores.
Supporting evidence must be collated into one PDF document. Please keep the evidence clear and concise. Our judges have to review multiple entries in each category so don’t have the time to read 50 pages. If you are struggling to scale back your supporting evidence, put the most impressive first.
Nominations are welcome for individuals/teams in multiple categories. For example, an individual could be entered as both a Shining Star and Account Manager of the Year. However, please make sure the submissions are tailored to the specific category and are not a ‘copy and paste’.
Please ensure nominations are entered in the category with the description that is the most suitable and appropriate. Judges are aware that companies have many different job titles to illustrate core business responsibilities.
