Do I need to be a Chamber member to be nominated?
No. Anyone can be nominated as long as your company is based and doing business in the London area.
When is our completed application due?
Applications must be submitted by 5:00pm, March 31, 2021.
Our company has been nominated in more than one category. May we submit applications for all of them?
No, you may only stand for one award, so choose the one that best fits your company's achievements.
How many finalists are in each category?
The top two ranked companies for each award category will be considered finalists and will be visited by a team of finalist judges in June. For our Business of the Year categories, the top four companies are considered finalists.
What is all involved with the site visit? What do I need to do to prepare?
If your company is chosen as a finalist, you will be notified of by the award coordinator of your company's site tour date & time. Site tours will be scheduled between June 21 - 30, 2021. Each award finalist will have a set amount of time, so it's best if you have a presentation ready. Please refer to the site tour guidelines to help you organize & plan for the visit. Most award categories are given one hour for the site tours, so manage your time accordingly.
This is your opportunity to really impress the judges and expand on the information you provided in your application. You will also be scored on the site tour in the following areas: 1) time management 2) quality of presentation and 3) Quality of Q & A.
Remember... this is your chance to WOW the judges and show them why your company is deserving of the award!
Why should I stand for nomination?
Past winners will attest that the recognition they received by participating in this program has benefited their business, and we encourage you to go forward and complete the application for nomination.
What if my company representative has changed?
Closer to the gala, the chamber will be forwarding the list of all the award finalist representatives. This list of names is during the gala evening to call up the award recipients should your company be chosen as the winner. Prior to the event, if there are any changes to your company representative, please inform Julia at the Chamber. If there are any last minute changes the day of the event, please notify the Wizards staff at the tech booth of the revision.
