General Questions About Submitting a Nomination

    There are 7 award categories: 3 categories require finalists to participate in a competition that will determine the winners, and 4 awards will be determined by a panel of judges.
  2. Download and Review the Nomination Worksheet(s)
    All nominations are to be submitted online. The nomination platform requires that you submit all of the information in one session. You will not be able to save a partially completed form and return later to complete it. We encourage you to use these worksheets to preview the nomination forms and collect the necessary information in advance.
  3. Gather Information
    After reviewing the Nomination Worksheets, take the time to gather all the information needed. Use the worksheet to complete the nomination form in its entirety.

    You may wish to use video, audio, slide presentations, documents, spreadsheets to support your nomination. Links to all supporting materials must be collected at one URL (e.g., Dropbox, Drive).

Each presenter will be given 2 minutes to give their presentation/demonstration and 30 seconds to clear the stage following their presentation. Organizers will provide one HDMI connection and one audio cable to each presenter. Presenters will present from their own devices. Props, staging, cast etc. that require more time to stage will cut into the presenter’s time.
