Nominations may also come from third parties (individuals or companies) who feel a particular company or person should be considered for an award.

Knect365, organiser of the CrewConnect Awards, recognises and respects the sensitive nature of the information submitted in the entries. We ensure that this recognition is shared by our Judging panel and that entries are not disclosed or discussed outside the judging process. The judging panel is selected to avoid any conflict of interest. Once an entry is shortlisted, extracts from the entry summary only will be sourced for inclusion in the awards ceremony and any subsequent editorial coverage. Please ensure your entry summary contains no confidential or sensitive information.
1. Do check your entry meets the criteria
You’d be surprised how many entries get rejected due to ‘technical slip’ such as being in the wrong category or wrong year. Our eagle-eyed judges will check the criteria. You should too.
2. Do stick to the word limit
No-one wants to wade through an overblown entry full of frothy platitudes on why your entry is the best. Stick to the word limit. Always.
Word limit for the entry 500 words.
Word limit for the synopsis 50 words
3. Do provide supplemental information
Our judges do a surprising amount of research into the shortlisted entries. Make their job easy by including links to online videos, webinars or articles that support your entry. Don’t get silly though. Tweets of your favourite cat gif will not go down well.
4. Do enter more than one category
There is no limit to the number of categories you can enter. A single project, deal or technology solution could work for a number of categories.
5. Do set free your inner journalist
Cub reporters at media school have the ‘What, Where, When, and How’ drummed into them from day one. What is the entry about? Where did it take place? When did it happen? How did it come about? You can add one more: Why is it significant to the industry?
6. Do hit the deadline
Late entries get binned. No-one wants that.
The deadline for submissions is the 15th September 2019.
