Nominee's are judged on combination of two parts, the submission form they are asked to complete and the activity on their nomination announcement post on facebook. Our committee of notable media professionals are responsible for reviewing the finalist submission forms in each category and the nomination announcement post on our social media. The submission form represents seventy five percent (75%) of the judging process, completing it in detail is imperative. The final twenty five (25%) percent is based on the activity reviewed on each individuals nomination post.

Submissions

Everyone selected for nomination must complete a submission form. The form should be filled out in detail utilizing the allotted fields and at least the minimum number of words required. The submission form represents a majority of our judging process, incomplete forms with short descriptions will inhibit the chances of winning.
