Rules and Requirements | See also Criteria
While a company may nominate for more than one category, no company may be nominated for multiple awards on substantially the same basis. Entries for multiple awards, which are broadly replicated, will be discarded. (For example, companies should not nominate themselves simultaneously in Breakthrough Solution of the Year and an Industry Leadership Award using the success of a single technological innovation as justification for both).
We reserve the right to move an entry to a different category from the category entered if the entry is better suited to that category.
All nominations must be submitted using the Online Nominating Form. Nominations must be received no later than March 6, 2017. No extensions to this date will be granted and incomplete entries may not be considered.
Nominations may be submitted either directly from a company, from an involved individual, or from a third party. In the event that a third party nominates a company or individual, Platts will contact the nominated company or individual and seek their approval; and, if necessary, request any missing documentation. If the company or individual fails to provide the required response by the specified date or does not approve the submission, the entry will be excluded from competition.
The Online Nominating Form requires completion of 3 sections for each nomination:
- Summary: The rationale behind the entry is not to exceed 300 words (2-3 paragraphs).
- Company Profile: Introduce the judges to your company. Include your line(s) of business, geographic area, number of employees, and years in business, etc.
- Judging Criteria: Each category has a unique set of criteria by which the nomination will be evaluated. Each criterion should have sufficient explanation – outstanding accomplishments, risks involved, significant obstacles which were overcome and any other pertinent information – which does not exceed 300 words. We strongly encourage you to reference the judging criteria glossary which gives clarity to each criterion.
All dollar amounts and financial statistics stated in the Online Nomination Form MUST be in US dollars.
Each nomination should include the nominated company's logo.
For screen quality, we require Adobe Illustrator EPS files. Nominations for
individuals (CEO and Lifetime Achievement Award) should also
be accompanied by a high-resolution image of 300 dpi or above, color photograph of the
individual nominated. All logos, photos and files can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Supporting material is not required; however, should you choose to send additional materials, please send them via email to email@example.com.
Winners will NOT be notified prior to the Global Metals Awards
event. Each winner is expected to accept their award on stage at the awards ceremony May 18, 2017, at Marriott Grosvenor Square in London, United Kingdom.
All information submitted through the Online Nominating Form and all supporting materials will be considered confidential.
