Association Awards UK Opens for Nominations
We are delighted to announce the Association Awards UK 2020 has opened for nominations.
You can nominate a project, you association, a colleague or yourself in a total of 27 categories, with new ones to represent the current climate and to focus on recognising personal efforts by association executives.
There are five new categories for specialists in the fields of: Membership & Communities, Marketing & Communications, Conferences & Events, Professional Development & Education, Publishing and Information, as well as Executive Heads of associations, and a general category for those not covered in the above roles.
The categories of 'Best Online Conference' and 'Best Member Support during Covid19' we expect to gain a great deal of interest due to the huge work that associations have done to support and deliver for their members.
The category of 'Best Digital Transformation' supercedes 'Best Webiste' opening up for many technology application and innovations that weren't covered by just website and certainly were more complex than just a website.
The new category of 'Best Association Mobile App' has been added as this is an area where associations are making great strides, but not nearly enough of us.
View the full list of categories here.
As in previous years, there are no fees to submit a nomination and you can submit multiple entries.
The nominations deadline is on Monday, 31 August, with the Awards Ceremony taking place on 14 October, during the Associations UK Congress.
Now nominations are completed online with the Pixl8 awards system. For details of how to do this, see here. You are now able to start a nomination, save it as a draft, and return later to complete it.
Once the nominations close, the functionality of the system will enabled us to use scoring and weighting in the judging - moving away from a ranking approach.
We have just used the Pixl8 awards system for the 'International & European Association Awards', where the number or nominations we received was 50% higher than the previous year.
Best of luck to all the nominees!
