Q&A

Who can vote?

Nominations are accepted by any firm, business or an individual based on the nominator criteria defined for each Award category.  For example, the ACTA award for the Influential Treasurer of the year can only be nominated by the specific companies Chief Financial Officer.

What should I/we include in the submission?

We have provided space for a 500 word statement to accompany the category selections.  Given the word count we encourage participants to be as specific as possible when highlighting the expertise and work completed.  The statement must provide tangible examples to support the entry.  Good entries tend to focus on key reasons, key outcomes or achievements, and measurable results. 

An entry will not be considered unless there is an accompanying statement and all votes must be completed via our online voting system.

Can more than one individual/company win the same award?

Although it is not the express intention to have recipients of the awards to be from the same company, under the definition of the awards, then it is a possibility to have multiple finalists and/or winners from the same company.

Where did you get my information form / why have I been contacted?

If we contact you regarding the award process – is because you have been nominated via our online voting platform.  It is most likely that you have been short listed as a finalist or winner of a category.  We would welcome you to join the awards ceremony. 

The nominator is required to provide contact details for each nominee.  We do encourage nominators to advise you of the nomination, but this is not a mandatory requirement.  On occasion, nominators would like their nomination to remain confidential for various reasons.

Where will the Winners be published?
