Where do I begin process?
It's recommended that you start with a simple nomination. That should only take about 2-3 minutes to complete. Once the nomination is submitted, check your email. This email will prompt you to create an account. Once your account is created, then you can create entries. (You can create as many entries as you like, although limit to one per awards category.) Entries are judged by the selection committee.
What is the maximum number of awards I can enter?
There is no maximum limit on the number of awards you can enter. You are welcome to participate in as many award categories as you desire.
How do I create an account?
Click here to find the "create account" form. Fill in your name, contact information, and email and password, and you're set! When you sign up, you'll be logged in automatically and can start creating your entries right away.
Where do I go to submit entries?
When you first log into your account, you'll see a "Start a new entry" form. Simply choose which category you want to enter, give your entry a title, and click the "Start" button. In the form that loads, you will find all the information you need in order to submit an entry to your selected category. You don't have to complete your entry all in one sitting. Your entry saves while you work, so you can always come back to it later.
Can I make changes to my entry after I've submitted it?
Yes, you can continue to edit your entries until the submission deadline. After the deadline, you will be able to view your entries, but the editing controls will be disabled.
Do I need any kind of special software to make my entries?
This awards system is entirely web-based. You can create your entries on your phone, iPad, laptop, or any computer. All you need is a browser.
How do you protect my information?
Your account is protected by industry-leading 4096-bit encryption, and the entire system is backed up every day.
