Rather than dozens of restrictive questions, each nominee is given the opportunity to submit an 800 word descriptive narrative that in their own words will best explain why they should win their chosen award category. After submitting the main text online and processing the entry fee, each nominee will be given the opportunity to submit accompanying images and documents to support their nomination. All of this information will then be made available online and provided to the judges for voting.

All nominations are to be made by an authorized representative of the nominated company / individual or other officially appointed representative.
