Awards are open to business of all sizes, trade associations, and chambers of commerce.
Any eligible entity may nominate itself or be nominated by a third party. Given the public format of finalist information, third-party nominators should ensure the nominated entity is aware of the application and prepared to participate in awards activities.
Eligible entities can be nominated for more than one category, but a separate application is required for each category. Additionally, while a company can be nominated in multiple categories, they will only be named a finalist in one category.
Past winners are not eligible to submit an application for three years in the category for which they won.
No more than three companies will be named a finalist in a specific category.
