Step 1: shortly after nominations, we will post all nominations on the SMC website and open them up for public voting (one vote per nomination per person, based on IP address. Please don’t try to vote multiple times by masking your IP address with a proxy, we can tell and will disqualify you!).

The 5 nominations in each category receiving the most votes by Monday, May 23rd at 11:59:59 will be short-listed and go on to step 2.

Step 2: an independent panel of judges will review and judge the 5 finalists in each category to determine the winner. One (1) winner will be selected in each category.

Judges are independent. Finalists will be contacted by email prior to the awards ceremony at the Networking Dinner.
