Are organizations/companies from any where in the world eligible to participate?

Our company won in the past. Are we eligible to participate again this year?
Yes, companies that won in the past are eligible to apply again this year. Most companies do participate again each year.

Can we apply in the same category as previous year?
Yes, applying in the same category is recommended. New entrants and a wider spectrum of judges determine the winners each year. So winners may be same or change in each category depending upon the scores. You may also submit nominations in more categories this time. 

Is there a fee to apply? Do all the categories have an entry fee?
Your fees, sponsorships, and volunteering help fund the programs. This is a premier “Business Awards” program and involves specialized resources from all over the world. Most categories do have fees which increase with each deadline. There are some categories that have no fees. The earlier you submit your nominations, the more you can save on fees.

Do we have to attend the Red Carpet Awards Ceremony to win?
Attendance is not a must to win. Attendance is however highly recommended for the benefit of finalists who have worked particularly hard to gain recognition and the prestigious award that they will be honored with during the ceremony. At the awards ceremony our team of photo and video professionals will work with the attendees to create content that can be promoted for several months after this event. This content will be made available complimentary to all the attendees after the event.

Can we submit nominations and volunteer as a judge too?
Yes. However as a judge you will not be able to score your own nominations.

How can we order additional copies of trophies, medallions, and plaques?
Any number of additional custom engraved trophies, medallions, or plaques can be ordered online for current or any of the previous years in which your organization won.
