Nomination Guideline


AWARD NOMINATION GUIDELINES

 

WHAT IS A NOMINATION

Award Nomination is a fantastic way of putting an individual or a firm in the spotlight which may honour the inspiring achievements of individuals and firms you know across all segments of accountancy. Showcasing excellence and achievement is a vital tool in the continuing battle to establish equality across all parts of the industry and in all roles. Nominations are one of the ways to ensure that the best and the brightest get the recognition of all the hard work, enthusiasm and diligence they have put into the businesses as well as been recognised, not only by you, your company, your colleagues and clients but by the whole region.

 

WHEN IS THE NOMINATION OPEN?

Nominations are officially opening on 22nd Apr 2020 along with Pre-launch of the event. But all our award night nominations are unofficially opened six months prior to the award ceremony.

 

HOW TO SUBMIT NOMINATIONS

Making a nomination is very straightforward and is designed to be targeted and not overly time consuming.  You simply need to complete the online form for the relevant category and this will be submitted automatically to us once completed. Entries can only be accepted via the entry form.  Fill out all of the required information, and make sure you choose the correct category from the list. Criteria for each award can be viewed on the categories page. Please note nominations can only be accepted for one category per individual. Each category has a list of criteria that should be referred to in your nomination.  You can select multiple categories in one nomination

 

WHO CAN NOMINATE?

Nominations can be made by the prospective nominee themselves, by a third party or by the event organisers. Practices, employers, institutes, clients, suppliers and colleagues who have had positive contact with the accounting profession are encouraged to make nominations to ensure the fullest range of candidates is put forward. Accountancy professionals who meet the criteria for a category can also make their own entry. Entries are open to all individuals, teams and firms from all industry sectors operating within the region.


WHY GET NOMINATED

Nominating someone for an award is a great way to pause and express gratitude towards your nominee. It gives you the same feeling as writing a recommendation or even just a thank-you note. There’s no better feeling for your nominee than walking up on stage and collecting that award. Nominations are the great way to put forward the name of nominee for a chance of putting their company in the spotlight and ensuring that all their hard work, enthusiasm and diligence have been recognised not only by your company and clients but by the whole region. This is the perfect opportunity to show your nominee, who time and time again go beyond what you expected from them, how much you truly appreciate what they’re doing.
