Are self-nominations accepted?

No, all nominees need to be nominated by a third party.

Is it possible to nominate someone in more than one category?

No, the questions are the same for each category so the category needs to be clearly defined.

How does judging work?

Judging will be based on the responses on the nomination form, but judges reserve the right to validate and quantify impact.

Is the awards event virtual or in-person?

The event will be held virtually via Zoom.

Why are winners notified so early?

Winner will be asked to give a short presentation so we have allotted them time to prepare.

Who can I contact if I have further questions?
