About

Best in Biz Awards honors companies, teams, executives and products for their business success in the current and previous year. Best in Biz Awards is currently held annually in three separate, geography based programs: (1) a North American program, covering the U.S. and Canada; (2) a program focused on EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa); and (3) an International program open to all companies anywhere in the world. Any company from any industry based in or operating in the awards program’s region may enter any of the more than 50 company, team, executive and product award categories. Companies eligible to participate in multiple programs are encouraged to do so.

Judges

Best in Biz Awards is unique as it is the only independent business awards program judged by members of the press and industry analysts. Each year, Best in Biz Awards assembles a top-notch judging panel to review and score all awards submissions. Having researched and covered countless successful companies, products, and dynamic business personalities, the judges are well positioned to objectively evaluate the entry pool to determine the top companies, teams, executives and products from among the submissions. Read more about the 2013 International judging panel, 2012 North American judging panel, 2012 EMEA judging panel and 2011 North American judging panel.

Submission process

For each category a company enters, a simple 3-part submission is required. Submissions consist of: (1) a summary of achievements and successes during the eligibility period (2013-2014) that are relevant to the award category; (2) supporting hyperlinks; and (3) a short biography of the nominee. We have found that this simple, but meaningful submission process is intuitive, and gives the judging panel a great window into the relevant business successes of each of the award entrants, ensuring that all of our participants compete on the merits and on an equal basis.
