NOMINATION ADVICE

Keep It Simple

The judges are sifting through many nominations so make sure that it is simple, to the point and articulates what you want the industry to know about. Stick to the text limit - word-heavy nominations will make readers switch off!

Tell A Story

Does your nomination take the judges on a journey to understand the focus of the entry? Does it explain the initial problem/challenge, and how it was overcome to illustrate the successes? The entry is not an ego boost, we need to know the reasons and experience behind the nomination.

Big Or Small

No nomination is big or small. The judges will be looking for the impact piece and how it has truly transformed networks and operations and what the ramifications has been for customers and user interfaces - does your entry demonstrate this despite the project size?
