Q: What does the editorial judging committee look for in a nomination?

A: Without getting into specifics, the committee is always impressed by measurable metrics and quantifiable results. Specifics are important. That means “cost savings and revenue generation” isn’t nearly as memorable as “generated $50 million in revenue for a client” or “saved the client $15 million,” for example.

Q: How strict are the word limits found in the nomination form?

A: Pretty strict. The limits are there for a reason and going way over the limits won't help your nominee's chances. Be concise and to the point as much as possible. We typically get between 400 and 500 nominations, so make your nomination stand out.
