The awards are open to all researchers worldwide. You can nominate yourself, your co-worker(s), your company or your clients so long as they meet the judging criteria for the category.  


If you are submitting more than one nomination, you must create a new registration for each nomination. You are allowed multiple registrations under the same e-mail address.This is the only way the planform will ensure you receive all applicable price discounts. If you put multiple nominations within one registration, you will be required to pay and submit all at the same time, and you are not guaranteed to receive all applicable early bird and standard pricing discounts. For step-by-step instructions, watch this video.
