- 02 July, 2014 08:08
It's now or never. Nominations for the 2014 ARN ICT Industry Awards close at midnight tonight, Wednesday, July 2.
But there is still time to get your nomination in. It isn't a lengthy process and ARN would love to have your entry among the flood we have received over the past month. It has been particularly exciting to see so many younger channel companies, start-ups and new players nominate this year, all eager to take on the older, well established, tech giants in some categories.
You can still nominate for 25 awards. Voting for the popular Channel Choice Awards will open on July 9. NOMINATE NOW.
Now in its eighth year, the awards recognise and celebrate industry excellence over the past year. To be hosted at a Celebration Dinner on Wednesday, September 3, at the Hilton Hotel in Sydney, the 2014 awards theme is Celebrating Bravehearts – channel courage and triumph in the ICT industry.
As the entire industry continues to evolve towards new business models and addresses the sweeping technological changes, ARN wants to commend the courage and tenacity witnessed in the vendor, distributor and reseller communities.
Companies and individuals have a chance to self-nominate across seven categories including: community; personal innovation; vendor; distributor; reseller; telecommunications; and homegrown innovators.
New on the awards agenda this year is Cloud technology as part of the Vendor category. You can nominate for the industry’s finest solutions addressing Cloud in any of the three key areas: Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS); and Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS).
Get nominating or miss out
To nominate, simply go to the Nominations page on the ARN website and click on the specific award link. This will direct you to the simple to navigate online questions.
Each category has four or five questions as part of the award criteria. With a varied mix of questions, you have a chance to put your best foot forward in answering the criteria, but please limit your responses to the maximum word count set per question. (Please see the specific instructions for each individual question as your guide).
ARN strongly recommends companies only self-nominate to ensure the best chance of success with our 90-strong judging panel. Please note that you only need one nomination submission to be in the running for your chosen award (other nominations cannot be considered). Then simply enter your name, company name and email address and you’ll be in the running.
REMEMBER: Nominations close on Wednesday, July 2, 2014, at midnight.
