A panel of CIOs from the CIO Executive Council's membership will judge the nominees and choose the winners based on the top scores. Each application is rated on career history, current responsibility and demonstrated leadership accomplishments.

Nomination Process:
All nominations must include the name of the CIO from the nominee's current employer. The listing of the CIO's name constitutes an endorsement of the nominee by that CIO as well as official permission for the nominee to participate in the award program. Applications can be completed by the nominee or other individual, but the final question should be completed by the nominee's boss or CIO.
Final question: “What is the number one reason why the nominee would make a successful CIO of the future? Please answer in 100 words or fewer.”
