Companies are allowed and encouraged to submit multiple entries in multiple categories in Best in Biz Awards 2017. Each entry should contain three sections:


A brief description of the nominee’s achievements since January 1, 2016

Describe the nominee’s achievements during the 2016-2017 eligibility period (that is from January 1, 2016 until day of submission).

Make sure to mention obstacles overcome, innovations or discoveries made, and specific results. (500 words or less)

Depending on the category, the “nominee” is either the company, a product, a department/team, executive or a media campaign, so accordingly, this section can be:

Hyperlinks to any news coverage, press releases or materials supporting the submission

Press stories, press releases, video clips, work samples and more can make a difference. If available, please include links in your submission (3-5 links is typical); these could be to your online news room, the best recent article, or a past award. In consideration for the judges’ time, please limit your hyperlinks to 10 links at most.

Depending on the category and as appropriate to the submission, this section can be:
