It’s that time of the year again – and I need your help.
Nominations are open for the 2015 Prepaid Summit Europe Awards with the awards ceremony taking place in Milan on 10 November 2015.Submissions can be made on behalf of your own company or in recognition of a colleague or a partner firm.
Full details of the awards categories and a link to download the nomination form can be found here.
Be open about your achievements
Information on submissions labelled CONFIDENTIAL will only be shown to members of the judging panel so please be open about successes. At the same time, even where financial information is in the public domain, please include it to provide a full picture of performance.
Support your opinions with facts
When judges compare companies on various criteria, a company which can quote data on customer satisfaction will be given precedence over one which claims "market-leading service quality" without evidence.
Bullet points and short paragraphs supported by a couple of charts or graphs are better than long-winded presentations. Full nominations should be kept to a maximum of 1,200 words.
Send your completed nomination to PSEawards15@timetric.com by 28 September.
Follow the guidelines
While you are invited to raise any point you feel strengthens your nomination, we recommend clearly and directly addressing each point listed in the category criteria – this allows judges to easily compare like with like, and will make sure there are no areas in which your nomination has nothing to say for itself.
Keep it current
Remember that in almost all categories, the award title contains the words "of the year". For maximum impact, please refer to developments made and performance achieved in the last 12 months.
While a record of success won’t hurt a nomination, it is the most recent activity that will win awards for nominees.
